Detailed Description

The Complete Dovetail : Handmade Furniture's Signature Joint. Author, Ian Kirby

This comprehensive handbook breaks the almost-lost art of dovetailing into simple steps. Woodworkers will see how to design the joint and lay out the wood, how to saw and chisel the parts, and how to make them fit perfectly together. The Complete Dovetail shows how to make four major corner dovetails (through, single-lap, double-lap, secret miter) and three rail joints (dovetail halving, dovetail housing, drawer top rail). Anyone can understand Ian Kirby's detailed explanations, sharp photographs, and clear drawings.
