How to make Double Twisted Dovetail Joints
I do not recall how, or when, I became curious about what I call the double-twisted dovetail. My interest was probably aroused by a discussion that centered on dovetailing in two directions at once, e.g., a drawer side to a front. For a long time I simply dismissed it as unworkable, without thinking it through. I was thinking idly about it one day, and realized that the joint was probably feasible.
