I cut blind dovetails for the first time last night by hand. Actually it was the first time I ever cut dovetails by hand period. They are not perfect but I am happy to get it accomplished. I need to get better at marking them out. I need to start using a marking knife and cutting to the line.
My tail board
The fit is a little loose.
I think I went awry trying to follow my crappy pencil lines.
Also loose on the backside but again I think it was my marking that was the biggest problem.
Again they are not great but I am geeked up about getting them done. I am building some end tables and I really want to hand cut the drawers.
