Double dovetail joint
« on: May 27, 2010, 01:33:18 PM »
This is amazing. :bow:
After admiring the double and double-double dovetail joints that are capable with the Incra and other jigs, I started thinking, “Why not try this by hand?” So this box is my first experiment with handcut double dovetails. It took me some time to figure out the joinery process, but once I realized a few things about this type of joint, it seemed do-able. It was quite challenging but also a ton of fun. It also does take some degree of patience and precision…which I’m still working on.

Making a second set of dovetails: :II:

I gotta admire *any* man that has a band saw on their driveway! The next logical step is a lathe in the garage and a "drill press" in the bedroom.   :-)
