My wife needs a crochet box so I’ve been practicing my dovetails. After about twenty practice joints in pine I thought I was ready to get started. Doing the joint in hardwood (Cherry) is so much different. My joints were pretty bad to start with, the two on the back of the box have some serious problems. By the front it was much better partially due to the arival of my new LN dovetails saw. Here there are all glued up.
and the downright ugly
you’ll notice that several wedges had to be added to this joint to close up the gaps that were created by poor chisel technique, this part of my work improved greatly far more than the sawing and that made the most difference between the first and last joint. Thanks for looking.
