Hand Cut Dovetail Clinic with David Fleming

May, 30 from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM MST


FREE Hand-Cut Dovetail Clinic with David Fleming

Discover the art of hand-crafted joinery — for FREE — in our Hand-Cut Dovetail Clinic!

It’s the classic mark of a woodworker: a perfect dovetail joint, hand-cut with saws and chisels, each side fitted neatly together to last for decades or even centuries.

And you can make your own!

This free workshop, led by master furniture-maker David Fleming, is the perfect opportunity to improve your hand tool skills and upgrade your joinery techniques. But even if you are a total beginner to woodworking, David will guide you through the process of producing this iconic (and very satisfying) method of joinery.

You will learn:

  • The fundamentals of creating perfect dovetail joints
  • Expert techniques for precision and durability
  • Hands-on practice with personalized guidance
  • Tips and tricks from a master craftsman

Prerequisites: None. Beginners welcome.

Registration is required. Class is limited to 8 students.

Meet your Instructor

David Fleming learned basic carpentry as a matter of necessity while living for many years remote northwest Alaska for many years. In the 1980’s, he discovered the work of woodworking icon James Krenov, and spent two years studying with Krenov at the renowned Fine Woodworking program at California’s College of the Redwoods. David relocated to Scottsdale, AZ in 1993 and has made furniture there ever since. An expert in hand tool use, he has taught Krenov-inspired woodworking techniques to small classes and groups since 2009. Visit www.dfcabinetmaker.com
