Well the joint looks nice and tight – it actually looks super! Why don’t you throw it in the dryer!

Or the toaster.

See if it’ll shrink the wood. HA.

Can you try sticking the tail side in a vice – or flat on the bench – and then, with a thin block of wood and mallet, tap the pins lightly, alternating pins to avoid jamming the pin board.

If that doesn’t work – better head to the toater oven…

No glue needed for that particular joint!
