So, I’m not known for my hand tool work. I saw, plane and chisel as necessary but generally if there is a way I’m going to use a power tool of some sort. I decided that I should give dovetails a try with hand tools. I do like the way the look better when they are cut by hand. There is a certain elegance to them. Watch the video below to see how I did.
So, they aren’t great. But for a first try they aren’t bad either. I’m definitely going to continue to work of hand cut joinery. Someday all of my dovetails will be cut by hand.
