Dovetail joints, beautiful woodworking process. I'm Robert Markey. I've been doing woodworking for many years. And I'm going to show you how to do a dovetail joint. Okay. We're going to, first, mark out the sides of the dovetail. And we're going onto this one here. So we're going to mark our thickness right here. I'm going to come across. And then go back down here. There's our dovetail. You want to cut it. And actually, as you notice, I did not quite stay in the lines, which is okay because we're going to go from the dovetail is what you use to mark the next one. So we can deal with that. There's our dovetail. This, by the way, is called a dovetail saw. From here, we now mark, on our other piece, the socket. And we mark, again, the distance. And this one comes straight down. And we cut this out. And this time, we try to be pretty precise. There are our cuts. We now have to chisel this out. And we can clean it up a little bit. And I'm going to just chamfer the edges a little bit so it will go in. There we have it- a dovetail joint. I'm Robert Markey. And this is the fastest dovetail joint I've ever made in my life.
