Unfortunately I have no pics to share of the problem yet but I’ll describe the situation in detail. Any advice is much welcomed. Just built a miniature dovetailed blanket chest out of cherry. Some of the dovetails at the corner of the chest were a bit tight and when I drove them home, I got a hairline split at one of the pins. I smooshe...
