Update on my crest stem

Posted By on April 3, 2010

I sacrificed my lunch to do some more operations on my new crest stem.
Since this was my first time to make handcut dovetails, I make an error on first marking, I was rushing and not thinking clearly.

wrong dovetail

wrongly marked dovetail

correct dovetail

properly marked dovetail

And now after the dovetail was cut and joined ( unfortunately, I do not have the right tools , that is why it is not too nicely done ).

And now , if You interested , how the cross dovetail was made , here is a picture which explains it:
