HOW TO CUT WOODWORKING JOINTS WITH HAND TOOLS
Woodworkers cut joints in wood in order to get the wood to fit (and stay) together to create furniture. Below you will see many free Wood And Shop video tutorials for cutting various furniture joints using traditional hand tools. You can click the buttons to see the photos and resources that go along with the videos (on the accompanying blog posts). We’ll keep adding more, so keep checking back!
HOW TO CUT DOVETAIL JOINTS | PINS FIRST:
Woodworking master Frank Klausz invited me into his new New Jersey workshop and showed me his amazing and fast method for “pins first” dovetails with hand tools.
This video playlist (15 short videos) shares the step-by-step dovetailing techniques taught to me by Roy Underhill (Woodwright’s Shop TV show) and Bill Anderson during a 5 day traditional woodworking class. I have tried to include all the details that Roy and Bill taught me several years ago.
In this video Joshua Farnsworth shows how to cut a tongue and groove joint with an antique Stanley No. 48 tongue & groove plane. (You can find an old Stanley #48 or a Stanley #148 tongue and groove plane on ebay).
