Build And Fit A Dovetailed Drawer
at Lie-Nielsen Toolworks
Instructor: Philip Lowe
August 12-13, 2017
Saturday (9-5) Sunday (9-4)
Materials Fee: $25
A well-fitted drawer is one of the defining features of a well-crafted piece of furniture. Many articles, tutorials, and books have been written to address the fitting of drawers, but most have focused on the best case scenario, ignoring a common situation: fitting a slightly imperfect drawer into a slightly imperfect opening.
In this workshop, master craftsman and educator Phil Lowe will demonstrate how to construct a classic dovetailed drawer. Over the course of the weekend students will cover the techniques of proper drawer-making, including how to fine-tune the piece after assembly to ensure a high-quality fit.
