Hi Gary- have a little problem in a jewlery cabinet I’m building. The interior has lots of panels and shelves arranged asymmetrically, w/ interlocking horizontal and vertical members. That is, the horizontal members don’t go all the way across, they intersect with vertical members, which intersect other members. My problem is that one of my horizontal pieces, with sliding dovetails, is about 1/32, maybe 3/64, too long. The parts all 3/8 thick and I was able to muscle it in, but it’s caused other parts to bow. I’d like to fix this problem, but I can’t simply trim the piece in length and recut the dovetail as this will cause the tail to become too narrow. Other than milling an entire new piece, do you know of anyway I can adjust to fit?
Thank you for your consideration,
