Today I attempted the fisrt set of pins on the apron board.
Here are the tails from the previous post:
Dry fit – first on top of the bench and then in place:
Lessons learned here:
- It is very tricky to dovetail a 1-3/4” thick board. Especially when it is your first hand cut dovetail.
- Be very patient!
I ended up with some gaps but it will still be usuable – the joint is really tight so will be serving the intended purpose.
On the other end – I am going going to rabbet the end of the front apron and only cut the dovetail half depth so hopefully the accuracy will be a bit better….
Thanks for looking.
