Default Hand Cutting A Dovetailed Drawer - 428K PDF

The Frank Klausz video How To Make A Dovetailed Drawer (I think that's
the title) covers a lot of ground - muitiple times. If you want to
learn
to handcut through dovetails this man is the master - both in the
quality
of the resulting joint as well as a very efficient procedure he uses for
making them. The video (and now there's also a DVD version) is
available
from many sources. Here's just one
http://www.thebestthings.com/books/videos.htm

If you have a VCR or DVD player along with something to show them
on - AND a remote that lets you rewind cause you're bound to miss
something critical - the first three or four times you try to follow
what's on the tape - the attached PDF file probably won't be necessary
unless you want to add your own notes.

But if you don't have that set up in your shop this PDF file might
come in handy. Print it and take it to the shop. Do what you see
on each page and when you're done you should have a functional
through dovetailed drawer. The dovetails may not be perfect
but that comes from practice.

Note:
The PDF file covers just the essentials of what's on the tape
/DVD with some Tage Frid and Ian Kirby thrown in. There's a lot of
other useful info on the tape/DVD and just watching Mr. Klausz cut
dovetails is worth every penny of the price of the video or DVD.
