//VIDEO: Hand Cut Dovetails Part 1: Arrange the Boards & Mark the Reference Faces

Video 1/15 of Joshua Farnsworth’s free hand cut dovetail video series shows how to arrange the wood grain, how to choose the best reference faces, and how to mark the reference faces using a traditional method. This is a very detailed and serious tutorial designed to teach beginners how to become expert at dovetailing by hand. It is offered as a free resource to encourage the revival of traditional woodworking.

Roy Underhill, Bill Anderson, & Peter Ross

This detailed video series was inspired by a 5 day class that I took from Roy Underhill and Bill Anderson: world-renowned experts on traditional woodworking with hand tools. (Peter Ross is also pictured above).
