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.
