Hand Cut Dovetails 1875 style
Robbie Pedersen is a master cabinet maker, who has a refreshingly direct technique and is a bit of a character. Robby has been handcrafting quality 19th-century-style heirloom furniture for more than 15 years. After graduating from Iowa State University with a Bachelor of Science in education and history, Robby worked for 10 years as the cabinetmaker at Living History Farms, a historical museum in Urbandale, Iowa. He also studied under a modern master cabinetmaker in Kansas City. Robby has written over 30 articles for Better Homes and Garden's Wood magazine as a special interest writer. He now integrates his background in education with knowledge and research on immigrants who settled in the United States in the 18th and 19th centuries, blending them all into each piece of furniture he creates. His website information location and class information can be found here http://www.rvp1875.com/index.php/
I found his method very helpful.
