I will be making thru dovetails in 5/8” stock. This is my first time using my Peachtree dovetail tail jig that I purchased many years ago, but never opened until recently. My test joints have gone well in both 3/4 and 5/8” material. I am making tool tray with a very similar design to my Jay Tray and Dave Tray that I have posted in the past.
My question is: Do I make the tails on the long front and back pieces or on the shorter ends OR does it not matter in this case?
I am looking at one of my test assemblies and I think I like the look of the face of the tails showing on the face of the long front and back pieces.
