I’ll use Horizontalmike’s tape idea, and Aj2’s suggestion is something I had considered. Might as well get some use from the expensive chisels I’ve accumulated.

These are, or will be, through dovetails. And this is the hard maple box I was working up dye combos for. Finally, the dye issue is settled, I’ve figured out the dovetail jig, and you guys have clarified my thinking on the dovetail gluing. Panels are glued up and clamped, and await dovetailing.

The favorite niece isn’t a kid. She must be well into her 30’s, and the box and little rocking chair are for the little girl she’s tried so long to have…and finally did. Every time I decide to make something for her, my brother buys one. I finally told him to STOP. He promised he would, and I got started on the box, which is what she requested.
