Cutting the tails

Use a dovetail saw to cut the tails the same way you sawed the pins (step 2). Angling the board, as shown at left, rather than the saw, makes for easier, more accurate, cutting. Secure the panel so the right-hand edges of the tails are vertical. Saw smoothly and evenly along the edges of the tails, stopping at the shoulder line. Reposition the panel in the vise to cut the left-hand edges. Once all the saw cuts have been made, remove the waste with a chisel as in step 3. To avoid splitting the tails, remove about half the waste, then turn the panel over to chisel out the remaining waste.
