I think this kind of thing, cutting and then trimming back, works well when your income source isn't really what you're making.

It's definitely safe, but it's also completely unrewarding. Doubly unrewarding is overcutting a joint, spending all the time trimming it to size and then finding that one of your references is wrong.

I don't make tenons and dovetails as often as some people, unless you count joints in planes, but anything that stops the flow in the shop really sucks. I'd rather make something with a mistake or two (and repair it) than constantly stop and ponder.
