« Part 2: Cutting the first set of dovetails Part 3 of Double Dovetail Box series Part 4: Cutting The Remaining Dovetails »

Well I’m back from California. I enjoyed the trip but it was raining more there than it does in Seattle this time of year so I’m really glad to be back home where I can work in my shop on rainy weekends.

Next step is to cut the corner pieces off of the scraps that they were glued to. Since they are small pieces I used a miter sled on my table saw and let them fall off. These is the other reason I made them a little wide when I cut them, so that there is room to cut them off with out leaving traces of glue on them.


Then glue each of the 4 corners onto the dovetailed ends. If the joints are cut perfectly then no clamp will be needed:


Make sure to let the glue set completely before cutting the remaining dovetail joints because you will be cutting into the first joint. I glued these up yesterday and will be cutting the remaining joints this afternoon. If all goes well I may get the box assembled today also.
