Curiously, the dovetail angle of 15 degrees just happened. I drew it, then measured the angle--it looks right to my eye.
The next step is to plan the cutting process. I definitely want to do the tails first on the top, even though I did the layout on the pin. I'm thinking circular saw with guide, or the table saw for the shoulder cut. Unfortunately, the heavy top is difficult to maneuver solo. I would attempt hand sawing if this bench were solely for me; I figure since I offered it for sale, I should try to be as professional as possible with this build.. I will, however, do the initial sawing on the pin by hand. Maybe I should put a float on my Christmas list; this is the perfect excuse for one...
