Hand-Cut Dovetails Video

Over at, Joel has posted the latest in the series of woodworking seminar videos. This one is Hand-Cut Dovetails with Robby Pedersen. Robby has spent almost 20 years teaching cabinetmaking to young people. His shop and showroom in Story City, Iowa, is a destination stop for school children throughout central Iowa. Before starting his business making reproduction furniture, Robby ran the period cabinet shop at the Living History Farms in Clive, Iowa.
During this seminar podcast, Robby demonstrates cutting dovetails with the same tools and techniques used by pioneer craftsmen of the 1800s.
You can stream the video to your computer, or download it and watch it later.
These seminars are conducted in the seminar room at the Woodsmith Store in Des Moines, Iowa, often with more than 100 people in attendance. They've been doing this for three years, and many of the seminars are recorded and posted as podcasts. So be sure to look around for other seminars you'd enjoy watching.
