I agree about staying parallel to the vertical lines on the face of the pin board and not worrying about whether you are on them, left, or right. They just show direction. It’s the line on the end grain that gives the location. In my first message, when I was talking about taking them out, it was part of my original error. When layout skills are honed, the kerf will look the same relative to the line on the end grain and face grain, but in the mean time, there’s no need to mess up the dovetail through misunderstanding (like in my original message 🙂 ).
