Re: Wampas drawer questions...

Barry, the cause is that the front and sides where not aligned when you dovetailed them together. There is no correction for this once done.

It is a very long time since I used a dovetail jig, so I am not sure what you must do to ensure the lower sides - the registration sides - are in line.

This is what I do when hand sawing ...

There is also a demo at the 8:00 minute mark in this video ...

The main tool for me is a shop made wooden square to check alignment. This is essential.

Regards from Perth
