    Well fitting handcut dovetails are an accepted hallmark of woodworking craftsmanship. In his signature style of understated simplicity, Frank Klausz walks the viewer through building a 20 minute dovetailed drawer in this 60 minute video. While there remains much to be said for his decades of daily practice and experience, the individual steps are each simple, achievable, and described and demonstrated in very fine detail. After squaring and sizing the stock, he proceeds directly to cut the pins by eye without the commonly prescribed, obsessively laborious measurement and marking.

    Aside from squaring and cutting the stock to size, you’ll need a good backsaw, a couple of sharp chisels, and a suitable workbench with vise and hold downs. The only real skills needed are the most bssic of basics: sawing to a line, and chiseling down on a line. While not strictly a prerequisite, his other video on hand tools HAND TOOLS – DVD -By Frank Klausz demonstrates how to put the required sharp edges on the tools.

    I found the video simply inspiring and empowering, by removing the complexity and mystique surrounding hand cut dovetails. He also talks a little about how he approaches and builds carcases. A mahogony veneer desk provides the context for the drawer and the demonstrations.
