Dovetailed Jewelry Chest with Mike Pekovich July 18 - 22, 2022

about this workshop

This useful and quietly elegant chest offers a lot of woodworking challenges in a small project. Students can put the skills they learn in this class to use on any number of other projects as well. Michael will cover tips for fast, accurate dovetails when building the case. Mitered liners are a powerful solution when dividing a space for drawers and shelves. Students will learn how to fine-tune the fit of miters with a hand plane for seamless joints. Everyone will come away with a smart strategy for fitting a sliding door, as well as a creative method for making recessed drawer pulls. Finally, participants will fill the case with 10 dovetailed drawers, but don’t worry, they go quickly once you get started!
