Everyday before working on any project, or even if I don't work on any I commit myself to cut at least one set of dovetails for practicing. Some days I cut two or more.
Well; three days ago something made "click" and fell in place and my dovetails started to be almost perfect straight from the saw. ( notice I say almost).
The best thing is that I can achieve these results consistently, and I can make them quite fast, (these took me about 12 minutes) so it is not a matter of luck. Now I have to improve my chiseling technique while I maintain and improve this standard, because the inner part of the joint is still lousy.
I know that this is no big deal for many of you, because you reached this stage long ago, but for me is quite an achievement so I wanted to share my joy with you.
