This is a first attempt at hand-cut dovetails. It's 5-1/2" x 3/4" red
oak. All operations (including cut-off) were done with hand tools.
Some of the gapping is due to some initially unnoticed cup in the wood
scrap that kept the pieces from mating well.
I've used power equipment for many things over the years, but recently
I've been doing more with good quality hand tools. There's a lot of
satisfaction in being able to say I can do it with traditional methods too.
Comments would be most welcome!
