Hand Tools & Carving—Dovetail Joinery

Hand Tools & Carving
Dovetail joinery with saw and chisel

Did you know you can use hand tools to cut sliding dovetail joints for a candle-stand in the same time it’d take to make jigs and do router setup? Mike Cyros, a former Period Furniture Group leader, will first show you how to do precise layout on the parts. Then he’ll demonstrate how to use hand saws and chisels to cut the mortises on the post and tenons on the legs. The result will be a tight, good-looking dovetail joint.

Mike has just made two gorgeous tilt-top candle-stands and he’ll talk about the construction of those too. Register here:
