Fitting the Frame

Fit all the dovetails together, use a chisel hammer for assembly if needed.

Once all four sides have been constructed, use a chisel to pare cut any protruding nubs at the corners to make sure the joins are flush, this uses a circular slicing motion. Be careful not to pare off the unsupported fibres on the edge. To avoid this, pare in from one side and stop before you get to the opposite edge, then pare in from the other side.
