Another Woodworking Class = More Dovetails

Well, it has been quite a while sense I posted, Christmas has come and gone as well as the whole winter.  I was in the ranks of the unemployed for about 4 1/2 months at the end of last year, and spent a fair amount of that time taking care of my mother who diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer in August.  She ended her fight on April 14th, rest in peace mom.

For my birthday my let me sign up for another woodworking class.  This one was at McLaughlin Woods, which is I found is only about 3 miles from my house.  You can get a quick introduction to Tom McLaughlin in this video posted by Woodcraft.

Anyway, one of the things we did in the class was hand cut a drawers worth of dovetails, and I’ve included the pictures below.

While I’m not about to build a $15,000.00 Bombay Secretary anytime soon.  I think those ended up coming out OK.  I did get to use my new Veritas Dovtail Saw that I got for Christmas.

The good weather is now here, and hopefully I’m back out into the shop.
