As I am working on a project that requires dovetails, I have spent most of my time in the shop this week shaking the rust out. It is entirely possible that I have reached a cabin-fever pitch of practice.
Those are the practice joints and the many practice cuts I made warming up and trying to work out what I was doing wrong. Not that I keep these around, but they were all lying on top of my shaving pile that I only sweep up when it’s waist deep.
Surprisingly, I have not mastered dovetails this week. At least not to the level I want. But I have identified places where I need work or work-arounds.
