Lee Valley - Scarborough - Make a Shaker Dovetailed Box


  • Lee Valley Tools 1275 Morningside Avenue Scarborough, ON, M1B Canada (map)

Dovetails are thought of as being difficult to cut and fit and because of that, there is hesitation in the beginner woodworker to incorporate them into their design. In reality, with a little patience and practise (and the Veritas® Dovetail Guide!), they aren't beyond the beginner. Vic Tesolin will guide you through the making of a cherry dovetailed box. Approximately 8"x10"x4", the box will incorporate a hinged lid and an applied bottom, making it ideal for keepsakes. During the class, you will learn how to install hinges, use a hand plane, cut dovetails (with and without a jig) and apply a simple wax finish. All tolls and materials will be provided.
