Laying out the pins

Set a cutting gauge to the stock thickness and scribe a line around the top end of each side piece to mark the shoulder line of the tails. Next, use a dovetail square to outline the pins on the same end; the wide part of the pins should be on the inside face of the stock. Start with a half-pin at each edge and add evenly spaced pins in between. To complete the marking, secure the piece in a vise and use a try square and pencil to extend the lines on the board end to the shoulder lines (above). Mark the waste sections with Xs as you go.
