Woodworker's Guide To Dovetails : How to Make the Essential Joint by Hand or Machine. Ernie Conover

Woodworkers will agree - the dovetail is the saavy cabinetmaker's corner joint of choice. It's become the hallmark of fine furniture everywhere. What many woodworkers have disagreed on however, is the best way to make a dovetail - by hand or by machine. With this new book from master woodworker Ernie Conover, readers will learn that making dovetails can be accomplished in a number of ways - and that choosing between hand-cutting or router-driven jigs is just that - a choice. You choose what you like best.

Using straightforward, efficient methods, Conover shows woodworkers how to cut full, half-blind and through dovetails using hand tools. After learning the basics of how this work-horse joint goes together, readers will move on to mastering the many popular router-driven jigs available on the market today, including:

  • Leigh jig
  • Kellar jig
  • Omni jig
  • WoodRat jig
  • Incra jig
  • Akita jig
  • Sears jig
  • Powermatic jig

Using step-by-step photographs and clear instructions, Woodworker's Guide to Dovetails will show you all the tricks to getting a perfect fitting joint!
