Event description

Description

In this class students will learn to cut traditional dovetail joints by hand using a handsaw, chisels, and a mallet. Students will learn how to lay out and mark the joints on wood and will be given individual guidance and instruction along the way. The goal of this course is for students to learn the basics of cutting dovetails so that they may incorporate this traditional joint into their own work. This course is open to beginner and intermediate woodworkers.
