For the past couple of weeks at school, I have been training for the Skills competition in April. One of the things that will be in the competition project will be dovetails. So I have been practicing them for a while, and they are really fun to build. I will admit this was not my first impression, at first they were frustrating and appeared impossible. And my first attempt had up to 1/8” gaps, so there was no way I was going to post that. The joint you see here is my first successful dovetail joint; Hand made out of pine in about 20 minutes. I hope to be doing many more of these in the future.
