Re: Assembling a dovetailed drawer

Yes, I can identify with your observation Bill. I was pretty sure that faeries do the final glue-up of these joints. You could have eased those of us with fantasies and suggested that some people do their own joints.

A question: Rather than slip the clamp back and forth to compress the joint, why not use two (or, more) clamps?

Also, it never occurred to me to slide the wet box into the case for custom fit.
