For centuries, dovetail joints have been instrumental in holding wood together. Though modern mass-production of furniture means that most such joints are now machine-cut instead, there is still a place for traditional hand-cut dovetails in low-volume, high-quality furniture making and, increasingly, in the work of the hobbyist woodworker. Dovetails is a comprehensive guide to the hand-tool preparation of dovetail joinery. Containing over 400 photographs and diagrams, it details how to make 28 dovetail joints, from the simplest example through to complicated puzzle joints.
