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. And if you’re interested in taking a three day class with Will Myers on building this lovely cherry candle stand table, you can click here to learn more about the class.
