class information

Mastering the hand-cut dovetail is a true benchmark in every woodworker's journey. Master woodworker Nathaniel Hill (featured in Fine Woodworking Magazine) will guide you through all the fundamentals as well as the more specific techniques he's acquired over the years to make dovetailed joints using only hand tools.

For this class, you’ll choose from 3 different dovetailed projects to make: a coffee pour-over holder, a lamp or a shaker-style hanging box.

You’ll come away not only with the skills to efficiently make dovetail joints, but with a deeper understanding of hand tool techniques that you can easily apply at your home workshop.

This class takes place over the course of a Saturday and Sunday. Both days will start at 8am and end at 6pm with a one-hour lunch break.
