Build a Dovetailed Tea Box with Mike Pekovich
If you've been thinking about taking the dovetail plunge, then this is the perfect project to get your feet wet. This elegant tea box is a great exercise in hand-cut dovetails with a power tool assist. You'll learn the basics of layout and tool selection as well as tips for sawing and scribing for a perfect fit. You'll outfit the box with a partitioned liner, which is a great lesson in bird's mouth miter joints and we will top it off with an elegant ebony clasp. It's an intricate piece of joinery, but the table saw handles most of the work. As an added bonus we will get some finish on the box in class so you should go home with a unique tea box ready for wrapping- just in time for the holidays! Join Mike Pekovich, Fine Woodworking's art director and resident hand tool addict, for this fun 3 day class. Sign up today- space is limited.
