My unsolicited advice for happy Dovetailing is a saw that feels great in your hands.When you get the right saw in your hands cutting straight will be easy.
A good positive attitude helps too because it s going to take time.
The rest you ll have work out but that s part of the fun and it keeps woodworking interesting.

Or you could just buy a router and Dt fixture jig and be bored the rest of your life.:)

Good advice! My favorite “dovetail” saw was an old Stanley gent saw. I didn’t like the handle, though … not enough control. Once I changed the handle to a more traditional open tote … it is now even more my favorite!
