To build this plane I am using
3/16" bronze throughout.
As you may know, I came up
with idea some time ago of exposed cupid bow detail on each dovetail.
For the first time ever I will try to get a row of these exposed cupid bows
fairly close together, instead of a bigger distance between each one. To achieve
this the pins have got to be much smaller than I would usually do.
I have set out the dovetails on a wooden template, as I always do with
the bronze in front ready for sawing in this position.
Once I have done the vertical saw cuts I no longer need the template,
but I will keep it for future reference.
Cutting out the rest of the waste.
