Dovetailling Course Day One
Arrival at West Dean College on a magnificent Autumn day. Pictured are part of the 1,000 acre grounds.
Here is a shot of the College from the grounds, this used to be someone's house until 30 or so years ago!
This is the restoration workshop where the course was being held for the diploma students, much smaller than the main workshop but ideal for the eight budding restorers.
Only 3 of the eight had dovetailed before so this was going to be a fast learning curve for most. The first afternoon was spent making a dovetail alignment board and almost all managed to get through to glue up which was impressive.
