Dovetail Workshop

$165.00

Dovetails enjoy a particular mystique and get a lot of attention in the woodworking community. This is in part because they are useful, attractive and fun to cut.  Another less discussed reason is that learning to cut a good dovetail teaches you a great deal about how to cut and fit other types of joinery as well, thus improving the quality of your craft.

While I call this class a Dovetail Workshop (and that is indeed the focus of our attention for the day) what I am also trying to teach my students is that other types of joinery can be fabricated using these kinds of optimized processes, and we will be looking at these over the course of the day as well.

During this one day session, we will cut dovetails by hand as well as with the various power tools that woodworkers commonly employ to speed up and improve the process such as with routers and band saws.  The instructor will also show you a lesser-known method for cutting through-dovetails with a table saw.

You will also spend some time in this class cutting dovetails by hand. Developing the ability to do this both accurately and quickly will take more time than the class allows, but you will come away from the lesson with a firm understanding of how to improve your skills quickly and with the understanding of what it will take there. A little more practice and some time developing your shop tooling is all it takes.

Come and enjoy a day with us in our beautiful studio in the historic district of downtown Snohomish, Washington. We look forward to seeing you!

A few notes about all of our classes:

Puget Sound Woodworking maintains small class sizes at a maximum of 4 students per class.  This guarantees that you get plenty of hands-on, personal time with the instructor.

The cost of materials is factored in to the price of the class.
