Well after my next hand cut dovetails they did come out better. I am going to have to find a better way to hold my board down while I chisel away though, keeps moving backwards on me. I’ve got a piece of oak on top of the board I’m chiseling with two f clamps, but it just keeps sliding backwards on me.

It also seems if I don’t go as slow cutting my cuts come out smoother, is that normal?

Thanks again for the advice.
