I got a lot done yesterday for the joinery on the long stretchers and am about 90% finished with it, but tonight I wanted to “take a break” so to speak. I got home from the gym late this evening and wanted to get a couple hours in, but after a long day of work and a long evening of training, I wanted to work on something different.
I was worried that I might be apt to make a mistake on the joinery since I’m a bit worn out physically and mentally at the moment. One of the final parts to this project with be a drawer made with hand-cut through-dovetails. I’ve only cut a few single-tail dovetails in scrap to practice before, but never cut a row of tails and pins.
So, I grabbed a couple of pieces of scrap pine and got to work. I didn’t really follow the clock, but I guess it took some where between 45 minutes to a little over an hour from layout to the final bit of paring.
