3 Pieces I made at Homestead Woodworking School

A shelf on top utilizing handcut dado's, mortises, and tenon jointery, a dovetailed box, and a walnut occasional table utilizing all hand-cut mortise and tenon jointery. A wonderful experience when all you have ever experienced is powertools. Grandaddy's image came back to me in his shop more than once during the week. It was quite an experience. We learned sharpening of all tools, including saw sharpening for the first time for me. Wow.

Hi there -- stumbled across your blog and was delighted to see the man who taught me to make a handmade dovetail joint!

Wasn't theirs a great class?
Wish I had more time to play with that craft, and am so tickled to have seen you've enjoyed Homestead Heritage classes as well.
