After much time off attributed to a number of different reasons, the weekly creation of shavings and sawdust is back in full swing. It is gratifying to accomplish my best set of pins, tails and resulting dovetail joint coincident with my 100th post.
The fit was still on the tight side, but no splitting of the end pins this time. Gaps are virtually non-existent on the “show” surfaces. The inside corner shows a bit of a gap, but I’m uncertain if it is acceptable or not. The misalignment of the edges is due to my careless flipping of the tail board during assembly from the original orientation used in marking the pin board.
