Welcome to my Woodworking Blog - She Works Wood. Below are pictures of what I'm working on or have completed. I hope you enjoy the pictures and commentary, Marilyn in Seattle.

Deadly dovetails ..

 Mill the board, cut it in half and label pins and tails.
 Cut a shallow rabbet on the inside of the tail board to accept the pin piece later.

 Layout the tails and saw (that's apparently a tricky part for me).
 Chisel out the waste using a guide block.
 Opps!  I looks like I pulled out a tooth.
 Lay out the pins with the tails.  Use the shallow rabbet to line up the boards.
 Chisel out the waste where the tails will go using a guide block again.

On the left, the first set.  On the right, the second set.
