Maybe you’ve been looking for a project with sliding dovetails to cut your teeth on. This one might just be it. In this episode, we marry the dovetailed uprights to the shelf unit’s top and bottom, deliberating on each one to get an exact and unique fit to correspond. This joint is different from any other type of dovetail in that it is a combination of three joints in one – the housing joint, the dado joint, and the dovetail joint. It might seem complicated, but these steps of progress address all of the issues you will encounter. In the end, you will have one of the most robust joints worked into your shelf unit.

    Would you consider that someone having a Stanley #98 side rabbet plane might use it for paring the sliding dovetails?

    I was just thinking the same thing – maybe run it along a block with a 10 degree (or whatever) angle?

    A nice touch to a elegant set of shelves. I’m looking for a place to put this in my kitchen! I have some questions but I’ll wait for the next video because I think you will answer them. 🙂
