Big dovetails— That’s what people will notice first
on these nesting tables. In fact, there’s really not much more to this table
plan than cutting the dovetails. Each table is made from three boards —
two sides and a top. The top table is tapered slighty, to allow the smaller tables
to nest underneath.
The wide, attractive dovetails are so big that we decided to use a band saw to
cut them. We'll show you step-by-step how we did it, with plenty of shop tips
for using the band saw and how to trim everything up with a hand chisel. This
project appeared in Woodsmith magazine No. 149.
