I don’t have a cutting gauge yet so it’s a pencil.
On the first photo before I cut away some more of the wood those were sitting farily good, only thing is that the pins were not sitting flush with the tails, they were still recessed a litt.e

When you are talking about cutting too close to the line, are you talking about the pings ( i am cutting tails first right now) or chopping the waste out with the chisel? Since i’m using a pencil should I be cuttin on the line?
