In these two videos, hand tool woodworker and Shaker furniture expert Will Myers shows his simplified method for cutting the mysterious sliding dovetail joint. And he does it as part of a cherry Shaker candle stand.
Will Myers reproduced this candle stand from a very famous table found at the Hancock Shaker Village. You can watch the tours that I filmed of the Shaker Village and shaker workshops here.
