Mastering Dovetails - Tuesday Evenings with Joel Moskowitz   

Tue Aug 08 06:00 PM


Learn dovetailing the way apprentices apprentices traditionally mastered certain woodworking techniques: by following instructions, using accurate tools and then practicing these hand skills.
The class will consist of three phases taught on successive Tuesday nights (beginning August 8th): (1) Exploration of the features and uses of hand tools used in dovetailing (2) Beginning to dovetail and the establishment of good dovetailing technique and (3) Continued practice and development of dovetailing skill.

Students will learn how to accurately lay out a joint, saw straight consistently, and chisel precisely. The home assignment will entail cutting a dovetail a day, putting into regular practice this woodworking essential. Students' progress will be evaluated with areas for improvement noted. If anyone runs into trouble during their daily dovetailing, they are welcome to confer with Joel via Skype to get them back on the right track.

The class teaches an essential woodworking skill via correct technique and regular repetition. Once you have your dovetailing skill in place, you can go on to do all kinds of fancy woodworking.

Class size is limited. Tuition includes all materials (including the homework) and use of tools during the class but students must obtain certain tools for home practice.

This is exciting! I'm sad that I'll be traveling during those weeks, but I can't wait to sign up for the next handwork class you offer.
