I do suggest that you hold on 'righty tighty' to your seat as if your not, you'll probably fall off it!
The first pic (above) shows two bits of oak, the lower being the bottom piece of my bow fronted cabinet. The dovetails have been cut and the housing for the drawer divider machined as well...so far so good.
The top piece is the fixed shelf. Click on the pic and you'll see that the shoulders line up perfectly, the housing joint has been magnificently machined to a smoooooooth sliding fit in the cabinet sides and the stopped housing joint for the divider lines up 'spot on'....
....except that if you look really carefully and have been paying full attention, you'll also realise that the stopped housing on the underside has been machined from the wrong bloody edge!
Hands up if you've been there, got the T shirt, worn it till it's a frayed rag and then torn it up for dusters?
I told you sit tight...
