In this video I show how to make a sliding dovetail and a housed sliding dovetail using power tools. After you watch this, take a look at Mitch’s video with the link below.

If you have an idea for another round of Hand or Power, please leave a comment below or use #handorpower on Twitter

Be sure to watch Mitch’s Hand Tool Version – (

Nice video series. But I have to admit, I’m more interested in Mitch’s version. Thanks for doing these instructional videos though.

Hey Tim. glad you like the videos! Myself, I rarely use only power tools to get anything done, it’s usually a combination of hand and power tools. I took some heat for using something as simple as a chisel in the last one I put out. We have had some good suggestions for some things, and we had to rule them out simply for the reason that I could not do them exclusively with power. Anyhow, thanks for commenting, and if you have any suggestions for future videos, let us know!

I really liked the video. I just replaced my router table with the incra ls system. Sure makes creeping up on the final easy. My next project will be a bank of drawers, think I’ll give it a try.

Thank you for sharing.
