Two things, go easy on the glue….dovetails don’t need a ton of glue.

I’ve had nice tight fitting dovetails that would go together without glue. When the glue was applied the wood swelled a bit and was next to impossible to assemble. So yes you can make them to tight.

If you have a couple of test pieces left over the a test joint using glue.

BTW what kind of dovetails?
