« Part 1: First 4 Attempts Part 2 of Practicing Hand Cut Dovetails series no next part

Alright, I’ve got another “batch” of dovetails. I feel like I’m getting a little bit better at it.

I was especially proud of the left one on #8… it’s the tightest most gap free one I’ve done yet

As always, any helpful comments are much appreciated :-)

Looking good man.Write the date on them also and put em on a shelf or what ever.Mine are in the shop.

I quit after 8 sets and dove into a project ,which were not pic worthy.Then did a couple more and did another project which had 2 drawers.After that I built my wife a dresser that has 6 drawers all through dts and didnt want to cut anymore.I have done a couple boxes since but I will probably have to do a couple practice sets before my next dt project.

Thanks Brandon. I hadn’t thought about putting a date on them… I might just do that, if I can remember when they were lol
