My first hand cut Dovetails

I Been practicing hand cutting dovetails attached are my first tries not perfect but I'm getting there Ha! The 2x4 one is not finished yet One thing I'm having trouble with is measuring the pins I probably need a divider to get same size pins or any other way I can measure them without a divider?

Nice job. Hand cut dovetails (machine cut for that matter) pins don't have to be all the same size. That is what makes hand cutting dovetails interesting as your imagination is your guide.

I like the small dovetail box holding the ruler and other small items. Nice.

I really like the look of the 2x4 dovetails with the sanded edges......
We always see them sanded flush. Very cool......

Learning more about tools everyday
