On dovetail joints, it is common to have the pins and sockets and dovetails project past each other creating a not-so-perfect joint. George Vondriska shows you an effective way to make your dovetail joints look perfectly flush using a low angle block plane. By using the block plane you’ll be able to create clean, crisp corners on your dovetail joints.
