I subscribe to an eletter published by the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship in Rockport, Maine. It keeps me up to date on what is happening at the school. In the most recent eletter, there was a short YouTube video made by a former student, Georgia Dent. It turns out that she does not have a shop of her own and so had nowhere to practice the skills she recently learned. She didn’t let that stop her. Dent is an avid cook and figured that she could practice her dovetails and mortise-and-tenon joinery in food rather than wood. If your dovetail cutting skills are well-seasoned, you’ll notice that some of Dent’s tails are cut backwards, but don’t get hung up on that . The one’s cut in sweet potato are great and the idea as a whole is fantastic. This is a fun video, so enjoy.

Georgia, I had thought of doing just this, but my Mon told me never to play with my food!
Well Done Georgia - and just in time for holiday dinner prep!

Everyone needs a bit of fun every day. You made my day.. I loved it!
very funny but i worry that little w'work will be done and at the same time the family will starve (that's a joke , Joyce) if you are interested e-mail me and i'll explain what that last part means
This is really cute and fun, but half the tails are cut the wrong way around, a melon and a piece of cheese jointed this way would not make it to my cocktail, no maam!
I love it! Great idea and it makes me hungry!
This is absolutely brilliant!
Lots of fun and very clever. Should share it with Fine Cooking.
Very clever and most entertaining! Thanks much.
Tom’s cabinet blunder and other smooth moves. Plus we roll out some new segments: stats and surprise questions. Will they make the cut?
Fast, fun approach to making a comfortable, casual seat
In this video Michael finishes the first of the three boxes. Gluing-up, planing, sanding and finishing bring a new piece of art to the world.
In this video Michael starts work on the second box, a carved and painted Saddle lid box.
Michael begins carving the saddle lid box with his ripple pattern along the top. Then turns to his 5/30 gouge to texture the sides of the box. This isn't work…
