Learn fast and efficient dovetail construction while building the case. Mike will cover the in's and out's of frame-and-panel construction while building, fitting and hanging the door. Finally everyone will build and fit a half-blind dovetailed drawer. The focus of the class will be on combining machine and handwork with classic construction techniques to produce work of the highest quality in the most efficient manner.
