Pedestrian dovetails *PIC*

Bill Tindall, E.Tn.

I do like it when a dovetail comes together with the thump of the heel of my hand.

Among the other activities today I got one drawer done. I especially like dong half blind dovetails. I oversaw the tails a bit. It makes digging out the waste easier. This cherry is stringy which makes digging out the waste in the corners of the pin board tedious. Cooperative grain snaps off back in these corners. I had to resort to a skew chisel on this wood.
