Cheating At Hand-cut Dovetails
Show Details: Powered-up Techniques for Accurate & Quicker Hand-cut Dovetails
Hand-cut dovetails are a benchmark of woodworking skill – and with the help of Glen D. Huey (and a little practice), your dovetails will instantly identify you as an accomplished artisan. You'll learn hand-cut dovetail basics as Glen shares the secrets he's learned from years of professional experience to quickly produce tight-fitting fine dovetails. Then, he shows you how to use power tools and shop-made jigs (plans included, of course!) to work even faster – all without sacrificing the hand-cut dovetail appearance.
BONUS: Includes plans for a dovetailed keepsake box!
