Good idea but clearly those fellows aren’t connoisseurs or even members of the cognoscenti or they would have made small pins and big tails.
Philip, with dovetail in cheek.
P.S: which did they print first-tails or pins?

its not that bad… don’t be sad! I can understand where they are coming from. they also have another tape:

it was an experiment with how the structural details change people perception of a furniture.

still, even though its real, I laughed for 10 minutes.

Peter, I just had this hilarious visual of you sitting and carefully painting end grain on each pin…

Does it come in size ‘large’ for log homes? Sooo much easier this way.

Maybe if the artist who did the artwork for the tape had ever looked at a real dovetail he/she might have noticed the grain should match from one pin (or tail) to the next. Well, unless the drawer sides are glueups.

Philip: “P.S: which did they print first-tails or pins?”

I think to satisfy more refined tastes the dovetail tape should come in two separate strips: pins and tails. This way a picky woodworker could decide for himself which one to do first.
