I have desperately wanted to learn how to dovetail for years and finally decided to just go for it. I bought some cheap tools on amazon and watched a few online tutorials, my favorite being a video on youtube by a woodworker named David Barron. I recently acquired a record player and a bunch of records so I decided to design a very simple record table. I bought poplar plywood (huge mistake), a handsaw, chisels, and a hand saw. If you decide to build this, splurge for solid wood! Feel free to email me for a tutorial.
