Of all the woodworking joints, the through dovetail is revered for not only its strength, but also its beauty. Many machines and jigs now make cutting dovetails a snap, and require little skill. But in this intensive 2 day class, you will learn the skills needed to successfully cut your own dovetail joints by hand. And in the end, you will have created your own handcrafted keepsake box. This class focuses exclusively on the mastery of hand tools, so no machines will be involved. So, get ready to have some fun and feel the sense of accomplishment that comes from making something with your own two hands.

Nothing says old world craftsmanship like the whoosh of a well-tuned hand plane, in the hands of a skilled craftsman, taking a gossamer shaving off a board. In this full-day class, students will learn about various planes as well as how and when to use them. We will thoroughly cover plane nomenclature on various styles of western bench and bevel up planes. Students will tune and set up a western style bench plane, review sharpening, and learn proper technique for edge and face jointing with a hand plane. During the day we will perform various real world planing exercises, including planing down to a reference surface (flush planing), and flattening a glued up panel. Troubleshooting and Q&A will be addressed throughout the day.

Every student who has taken this course, without exception, has left being able to produce full width shavings they can read through!
