Beyond the basic dovetail with Will Neptune

candlestand dovetails 640Dovetails are one of the basic joints in any fine furniture. They hold the parts together mechanically and do not rely on glue or mechanical fasteners and thus they outlast any other form of joinery. Basic through and lapped (half blind) dovetails are common place and have been covered in many other classes. This unique class with Will Neptune will concentrate on the factors necessary to cut any precise joinery, i.e.. sharpening, accurate layout and precise saw and chisel control. We will then go on to explore the techniques to cut other types of dovetails by hand- The sliding dovetail joining the legs to the turned base of a tripod table, the dovetails joining the drawer dividers in a chest of drawers and the housed tapered dovetail- frequently called a sliding dovetail, are just a few of the joints we will concentrate in this hands on class. Don’t miss this great opportunity to learn more about joinery from one of this country’s best craftsmen and instructor.
