If you would like to learn how to produce fine woodworking projects, in a fun, safe and easy going environment with an instructor who has over 30 years experience, the Dovetail Joint is for you!

The aim of The Dovetail Joint is to provide an educational experience for both male and female adults, interested in woodworking, whether being a beginner or experienced woodworker.

About The Instructor

The Instructor, Malcolm Haling has over 30 years experience, and has spent most of his life sharing all the skills needed to become adept at working with wood. Read more about Malcolm here.

The Courses

The Dovetail Joint Courses will be run regularly in a well equipped workshop in the beautiful Clifton Grove Estate, 10 minutes drive from the township of Orange, NSW.

Class sizes will be small, with four to six students to maximise your time with the course instructor, this will allow you to gain the knowledge you need to fine tune your woodworking skills. If you are interested in attending a woodworking course, please fill in our contact form.
