There are many panels to glue up on this project, quite large ones, in preparation for the dovetail joinery to each of the corners. We lay it out on a stick template so Paul can transfer the same dovetails to each corner. It’s faster, more efficient and when done properly ensures that all of the dovetails are the same — much safer. Paul has combined different methods for removing the waste between the dovetails and the pins. Paul thinks discovering alternatives is good for us, and he explains his reasoning as he goes. Additionally, he used many techniques you are unlikely to see anywhere else, but these are important for everyone to develop the best woodworking skills they can. The conclusion of this episode is Paul’s own method of gluing up wide dovetailed pieces to ensure the dovetails go together correctly and evenly and without glue-freeze.
