Dovetails, Continued

Back in our woodworking class, Liz and I are working on dovetail joints. Last week, I attended our normal class but Liz had to miss because she was still under the weather.

Instead of doing a make-up class, we realized that Liz and I were mostly at the same stage (I’m markedly slower than her). So she ended up not taking a make-up class, and we both showed up at around the same point in our projects.

After cutting out the tails, I started work on the pins. Which involved using painter’s tape, and scribing the tails onto the board for the pins.

Once more, I was pretty nervous with the sawing/cutting. And mostly did an ok job. But I still find this to be one of the more stressful steps, for some reason.
