Joinery #4, Dovetail Joints in Wood


The first project will be blind dovetails of the kind you would find in the front of any good-quality sliding drawer. Following this we will switch to another type of jig to build through dovetails. These have good strength and add decorative features as well as strength to the corners of large boxes and cabinets. To accomplish this we will be using both hand-held and table routers. We will be showing samples and discussing other types of manufacturing equipment, as well as hand-cut dovetails.
