How I Dovetail a Drawer

February 8, 2015

In this video I share an in depth look at my typical technique for dovetailing a drawer. My drawers are joined with half-blind dovetails in the front and through dovetails in the back. My technique tends to vary depending on my mood and the size of the work pieces but this is my go to technique.

  • Great video! Great shop! I just found your site and think it’s fantastic. After finally getting to hanging the rest of the drywall in one portion of my studio/shop I noticed how much brighter the space was. I would paint those foam panels on your door and enjoy the free light!

    • Thank you Kevin! Covering up those panel is on my list… there’s always something to do 🙂
