Hi guys, I do not know how many of you are good at hand cutting dovetails, but I'm not among you (yet)
I've been practising cutting dovetails almost every day from the begining of the month, and the results are being quite erratic not to say random. What you see here are the remaining trials, some other were too bad to be shown so I threw them away in desperation.
From absolutely loose ones, to too tigh others passing through all sorts of precision.
The problem is that when I think I'm getting the knack of it and I make a couple that seem acceptable, the next one is like making five steps backwards. What you see here are some of the trials, at the beggining I put the date on them so I could see the evolution, on some others I was so frustrated I didn't put anything.
I need to get them right for my seven drawer dresser, or it will look awful.
