Ok I guess that I'm knee deep again. I have been having a TERRIBLE time with this dovetail joint. I 'm half ready to turn the whole thing into kindling.
If you look at the close up:
You will see my nightmare. there are a number of things going on that are just flat out BAD. What do I do now????
1. The magenta line is the line that should run through the center of the body. the green line is the line that now runs through the cneter. I have tried to fix it but it gets worse. What face to I need to work on to bring it to the center?
2. In my panic to line things up, I slipped and applied a bit too much sanding angle to face "B" (notice the edge rides up from the body and makes a gap) What should I do now?
The good news if any ( I think) is that the top of the neck is flush to the top of the body and the distance on a straightedge is approx 1/8 above the bridge position.
That is my best course of action now? Thanks in advance........ Stuart
