I started using SU for Web last week, and have made decent (but messy)
Side Table.skp (440.9 KB)
I’ve searched but can’t find this particular situation. I’m building a table that includes a dovetailed drawer. I made the drawer side with the tails cut out the way I believe they should appear along with the drawer front to which it will attach (or glue to when making the drawer in my shop). Each was made a component.
What I want to do is move the side to intersect with the front and cut the dovetail into the front. I tried gluing the side to horizontal and selecting “Cut Opening”, but when I move the front away, the dovetail pins have not been cut.
Am I misunderstanding this, or is it just not possible? I will eventually want to do the same operation when making mortise and tenon joints.
