WSDS - Woodworking Skills: Dovetail Workshop - Dan Paret

  • You will need one piece of 1” x 6” x 8’ select pine.
  • The best wood for this project is select eastern white pine. I usually get mine at Gurney’s Sawmill in Freetown, but that is a bit of a hike. You can also get select eastern white pine at Arlington Coal and Lumber and sometimes Home Depot and Lowes. At Lowes you will find a good selection of radiata pine and poplar-either of these will make a decent substitute.
  • If you need to cut your wood to transport it, cut it in half so you have two 4 feet long pieces.
  • 1x6 lumber will actually be ¾” thick by 5 1/2” wide
