CORE SKILLS: Dovetails

'Easier than you think'

The dovetail is used to join the corners of cabinets, drawers, and boxes. While it's certainly impressive it isn't as difficult as it appears. There's no need to feel intimidated, and with our systematic approach, you'll quickly get to grips with the fundamentals of the joint. We recommend that you take a Taster class or Core Skills: Joinery first, but we will go over a few basic concepts for newcomers.




       What Do We Cover?

  • Measuring and marking
