I’ve been hand cutting dovetails using a Bad Ax 10” dovetail saw and Stanley Sweetheart socket chisels. The chisels came with a 30 degree bevel and after sharpening they have held the edge very well.

My half dovetail fronts have been cherry and curly maple, not exactly soft wood. The sides and back of my drawers are thru dovetails in yellow birch.

Seeing Frank Klausz cut dovetails at the WIA and watching his videos has been very helpful.
