Hey Frank,
YES! The important step is that the short grain male DTs, that will be
installed as usual on the sides of the carcasse, are used as a reference to
perfectly size the female cheater 45deg long grain strips. When the cheater
45 strips are dry, I slide the male DTs-as-spacers out, and install them on
the carcasse. Then slide the female "dovetail" over the male parts. If the
male DTs mushroom a little during their installation, that's kind of a
bonus, as it works sort of like a draw-bored M&T, and really sucks the lady
DT onto the carcasse.
