//Hand Cut Dovetails with Frank Klausz {Pins First}

In my above video, Frank Klausz takes us into his new workshop and shows his amazing method for speedy “pins first” hand cut through dovetails with hand tools. This is a continuation of the tour that I shared of Frank’s new woodworking workshop.

Frank Klausz is a master Hungarian woodworker and teacher who has been featured in many woodworking magazine articles and video recordings. You can checkout these classic woodworking DVD videos that feature Frank’s instruction. Here are a few photos from my first article:

In the video Frank implores woodworkers who prefer the “tails-first” dovetail method to give the “pins first” dovetail technique a try!

Interesting to see he adapts his tool choice, like the metal planes, to what is easier to teach. I have seen another version where he cuts dovetails. There he uses a special bowsaw blade that is twisted in the middle. The first half of the blade allowed him to cut the verticals, the second half allowed him to follow through like you would with a fretsaw to cut the bottoms. Here that’s all done with chisels. A real teacher at work.
