failed dovetail

  • make sure your pencil is sharp
  • cut inside of the pencil mark otherwise there will be a gap between the joints
  • mark the faces that you are measuring against
  • if you are cutting the wood to make the join always use a t-square to get a true line
  • when you have cut the first joint and use it as a template, mark out the bits you need to cut out otherwise you'll find you cut out the wrong bits.
  • try not to be paul and use a chisel the first time around to cut out the joints. you'll not get the line straight otherwise
