|That's What We're Talking About !!|
The dovetail joint has a certain mystique about it among woodworkers. Heck, even Fine Woodworking uses it as part of their logo and has since the magazine was first published in the early 70's. There are other joints that can be used but the mystique continues and many of us get intrigued with making this particular joint. It's the ideal joint for a drawer front and if you have a desk or entry hall table with a single drawer that project would be a good one to work with this joint. If I have a bunch of drawers to make for dressers or cabinets I'll be the first to whip out my old Craftsman router and dovetail jig, cut up some Baltic Birch plywood and go to town. At the meeting I'll show you the techniques and methods I use that usually give me some degree of success.
If you were at last month's meeting you may recall that the subject of having business cards promoting the club came up again. Cost, of course, is always an issue but one of our members happens to have a printing business! His name is Steve Mongrain and Jamie tells me he has them ready. I believe he'll be bringing them to the meeting so be sure to come to the meeting and be the first to see them:
See you Wednesday!
