Join one of the most active woodworking communities on the Internet and interact with over 60,000 fellow woodworkers. GOAL: To learn the process and techniques involved in hand-cutting two of the most common of the four types of dovetail joints. The single-lap joint on the front is marked out by two gauge settings and three gauge lines.
With the type of dovetail joint selected for your project and the design and layout complete, you might be eager to get started.
The single-lap dovetail is the joint at the front of any drawer constructed using dovetail joinery.
Lay the drawer front on the bench and, using the widest chisel that will fit between the saw kerfs, begin to chop by positioning the chisel about halfway down the joint (see Photo 1).
