Practice your dovetails while making dinnercomments (13) July 13th, 2010 in blogs, videos

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.
