Questions About Dovetail Joints

Recommended Posts

I’ve been making dovetail joints for a while now and I’m usually satisfied with the results; however, my pins are wider than the ones that I see in contemporary furniture. I’ve attempted to make them with the more narrow pins that are so popular today but I have trouble marking the tail margins on the pin board because my marking knife won’t reach into the narrow pin socket deep enough. I know that Rob Cosman sells a marking tool, but I’m sure that there are other tools being used. What are people using to to this..?
