Handmade Dovetails Workshop

September 18, 2021 at 9:00 am - September 19, 2021 at 5:00 pm

Come learn the time-honored woodworking tradition of hand-cut dovetail joinery (which is more fun than it sounds!). After a quick primer on how to sharpen tools properly we will dive into dovetails, learning proper layout and cutting technique. You will be encouraged to use your practice boards to build a small project that you can leave with such as a box, drawer, tray, or sculpture. This class is meant to be inclusive to all, whether you’ve never touched a chisel before or if you’re already a woodworker but want to add some hand skills to your repertoire.
