Learn the secrets to long-lasting joints using both traditional and modern tools. The concept of joinery is as old as recorded history. Furniture with handcut dovetail joints has been found entombed with the mummies dating back to ancient Egypt. Several thousand years later, dovetails are still being used today to fasten objects of wood. The fact that there are thousands and thousands of pieces from the 18th century still being used today shows just how durable good joinery can be. In these articles, collected by the editors of "Fine Woodworking" magazine, you'll learn how to use your hand and power tools to make tight joints that will help your furniture last for generations.
