  • Tape off the inside of the panels/sides right up to the edge of the dovetails, before you glue. This will keep the squeeze out from puddling in the inside corners when you join them. Leave a little tape longer, so that it is easy to grab.
  • After joining the glued sides, and before any glue dries, carefully remove the tape from the inside corners. You will notice just how clean the tape has kept those corners… a good thing 8-)
  • The outside corners of the glued up box will be easy to sand/scrape clean, so that part is easy to clean up afterwards.

Good luck!
