Get ready to dovetail! This two day class is designed to really get you dovetailing. You’ll cut more dovetails in two days than you have probably cut in you life. All with the intent to tune up your technique and speed up the process. The goals are simple: fix your sawing and waste removal techniques; give you some powerful time and labor saving tips; get you cutting consistently good dovetails every time right out of the box.
