Dovetails!

The dovetail excercises were very enjoyable. First a through dovetail, then a mitred dovetail and lapped dovetail with an internal shoulder to finish.

It’s been 12 years since I’ve done any sort of dovetail joint. So I was quite pleased with the results but there is certainly room for improvement. The quality did improve as I progressed through the excercises and have further improved with the tool box I am currently working on. The speed has also greatly increased as comfidence is gained.

More about the tool box soon!
