Decided to build a chest of drawers.
Decided to use half blind dovetails on all four (4) corners of each
No good reason, except when I got started with a router and that
dovetail jig, forgot to stop.
"Cut all the dovetails the correct way, so it could be assembled", he
said as he almost broke his arm trying to pat himself on the back.
The problem is the final glue up while keeping everything square.
Have some old Craftsman picture frame clamps along with adequate pipe
clamps for the job.
Decided to glue up the drawers in two (2) steps.
First day, opposite corners were glued together using the picture
frame clamps to keep adjacent parts of the drawer square to each other.
Second day, the remaining opposite corners were glued together and
clamped with four (4) pipe clamps.
All drawers are square within =/- 1/64" across the diagonals.
Close enough for government work and drawer assembly.
BTW, since I had prefinished the parts with shellac, managing to slop
some on the pins and tails, used epoxy thickened wit micro-balloons to
glue everything together since TiteBond II wouldn't do it.
It worked for me, maybe you will find it useful.
