I know using dimensional lumber is frowned upon here, but it’s good to practice on. It’s cheap and is already planed square. Take an 8’ pine 1×6 and cut it in half. Practice on dovetailing it back together. I should look like crap at first, so cut an inch off of each board and try again. And again, and again. By the time you have used up your four dollar board, you will either be getting the hang of it, or you will get frustrated and quit. Just be patient, if you try to do it fast, you will just mess up. Speed and skill come with practice. Take your time and enjoy yourself. You’ll get there.

-- I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you. I'm sorry,thanks.
