I have been away from working with wood for a while. So I am going back to the basics. A couple of future project require that I make some box joint; so that is where I’m starting.

Looks like you are doing a box joint there and is perfectly fine for box and drawer construction. Dovetail joints have a +/- 7degree taper in the pins and tails. Keep practicing you will get the hang of it in no time.

First off, welcome back to the shop! Any interlocking type of joint looks cool, especially with the contrast of end grain vs side grain when finish is applied. If your next project requires drawers you will see the fundamental strength and purpose of the classic dovetail. Besides, I bet you could cut anything on that massive powermatic bandsaw. Thank you for sharing and take care.
