1. Rather than cutting the mating dovetails perfect, I think I like idea in this video of leaving a little more waste along the cut line and then parring to fit after the waste has been removed. Not only for this project but any dovetails. Feels like I’d have a better chance of fine tuning them easier this way.

  2. Great build Paul! It’s nice to see a master struggle with large pieces like I do in the shop. You mentioned leaving the pared cuttings in the bottom of the tail recess so if needed, you could bring them back up and do something with them that I did not quite get. Would you take a moment to show exactly what you were talking about?
    Thanks again Master.
