First hand cut dovetails

I’d been avoiding trying dovetails for a while, after reading lots of horror stories about how hard they were to get right. I decided that since it’s Roundtuit month that I should give it a go. I marked out one set, then cut them.

I marked the other set off these and cut them too, marking the waste

Time to try putting them together

Obviously I’d marked the wrong way so cut the pins off and tried again

Far from perfect, but I’m proud of myself for giving it a go. I’m going to keep this set to look back on in a years time, and see how the sets I do then compared to it. Practice makes perfect!
