Fishtail?

May 20, 2008

This is an idea I come up with while experimenting with handcutting dovetails.  Someone on Woodnet suggested I call these “fishtail” joints, instead of dovetail joints.  I need to improve on the look of the peg in the center tail.

 

 

 

Here is a standard dovetail compared to my variation.
