Showing Shop Dovetail Procedure (in SketchUp)
Recently I tried to explain my dovetail procedure used in the shop. The project was making several Shaker Chip Boxes, and each corner is fastened with hand-cut dovetails (these are different than I would typically use, but I’m trying to represent the original work).
My verbal explanation was not very helpful, so I tried another communication tool – SketchUp.
The results are shown below in several steps. It may be hard to read the text, so if you would like a PDF copy of the procedure, you can request by email.
This is possibly another way for shop teachers to show students how to perform specific procedures.
