What is dovetail joinery?
Dovetail joinery is used by carpenters to create incredibly sturdy, long-lasting furniture that does not require nails and screws to stay held together. Instead, a cutout pattern of either pins or tails on the end of the wooden boards fits together like puzzle pieces. Once glued, dovetail joinery is extremely hard to pull apart. This craftsmanship has been used for hundreds of years to build furniture as well as log homes and buildings.
