Dovetails in the Saw Till carcass .. better .. but

I made more progress on my saw till to day.  It was a glorious day to open the garage door and work.  Moses, the Wonder Dog, curled up in his hole in the yard and kept an eye on me.

First, I scrapped off the glue on my glued up panels.  Final size was ~9".  The wood is alder (poor man's cherry?)
Then I cut a a 1/32" rabbet in the tail board to set the pin board in.

Then cut the dovetails, laid out and cut the pins, etc.
   Wa La! .. better dovetails .. not perfect, but better.

Man, what's with Blogger.  This post was a pain in the butt!
