Dovetails are often seen as the pinnacle of hand tool woodworking and the sign of a good craftsman, usually intimidating beginners from trying them. But are they really that difficult?
This is a comprehensive video breaking down every step of the process including various options you have, different techniques you can use, and extreme close ups so you can see exactly what my eyes are seeing.
These techniques come from a variety of sources and tutors throughout my years of woodworking and is the combination that I find works best for me.
Any questions, let me know in the comments!

My name is Matt Estlea, I’m a 22 year old Woodworker from Basingstoke in England and my aim is to make your woodworking less s***.
I come from 5 years tuition at Rycotewood Furniture Centre and 4 years experience working at Axminster Tools and Machinery where I still currently work on weekends. During the week, I film woodworking projects, tutorials, reviews and a viewer favourite ‘Tool Duel’ where I compare two cometitive manufacturers tools against one another to find out which is best.
I like to have a laugh and my videos are quite fast paced BUT you will learn a lot, I assure you.
Lets go make a mess.
