Why take them apart? They obviously don’t need glue.

If you have to hit them with a dead blow mallet to get them together they will absolutely bee to tight once the glue is applied. They should slide easily together “just right” when dry because the glue will cause swelling.

Awesome job on the dovetails though. If you do get them apart pare a little more away before gluing.

-- Happy woodworking!
