The complete dovetail.
Handmade furniture’s signature joint.
By: Ian Kirby 1999
This book is a wonderful source of dovetail making.
All the different dovetails are illustrated, and you are with black and white drawings and photos guided through the process.
Theory behind the making and using.
The tools use and guide.
And much more.
I have never made a dovetail in my life, but this book explain it all so well, that after reading it, I already have made several without even touching the tools yet.
Yes this is a book to die for if you start out in dovetails, highly professional, ands yet understandable, even for me…
Thank you Ian.
