However, be careful to not undercut the surfaces at each corner. Otherwise you'll see a distracting void in the assembled joint.

To assemble the joint, first position the pin board upright

in the vise. Now gently press the tail board into the pin board using pressure from your thumbs. When assembling dovetails on wide casework, I'll use gentle taps from a dead-blow mallet. You can hear and feel where a portion of the joint may be too tight. Simply pare a shaving from any such areas, slide the joint together, and step back and admire your work. With patience you'll find that dovetailing is one of woodworking's most pleasurable tasks. PW

In wide casework especially, you may need a few taps of a dead-blow mallet.
