    Don't know about workshop schedule for 2018 yet. It would be good if you mentioned what your background/experience with hand tools might be? You can look back at some of the photos of a workshop held at Phil Soper's shop and get an idea of what we did in a group setting twice last year.

    I have a small shop so large groups just don't work well in my shop.



    I have been doing a whole lot of teaching with one student and some days with 2 students. Just last week taught cabinet making with hand tools and power tools.



    This is the basic Jelly Cabinet when done. It includes dovetails, mortise and Tenon, cutting moldings, and beading edges.


    Dovetailing?







    Small stuff





    Compound angle joinery






    My favorite tool for dt












    Look in the gallery under danmart77. Lots of different dovetail joinery.

    Re: Dovetail workshop

    I am always willing to open my shop for a class. Dan and I have done dovetail classes before - neither of us has forgotten how.

    If we can find eight students for a class in Jan or Feb ..... and yes I am lucky enough to have heat in the shop

    Re: Dovetail workshop

    I know a little about hand tools. Not much. I have watched videos on dovetails. However, when trying to cut them they don't look good. I don't have anything in mind to make. I was going to go a few years back when they had the workshop for tool carrier. But they were doing more complicated dovetails and since I didn't know how to do regular ones I didn't attend.

    Phil, if one comes available I would like to be put on the list.
