I push the micarta dovetail into the angle under the bolster and clamp it in place. Make sure the parts are clean, you don’t want some stray grit to cause a gap between the parts. Drill through just like the bolsters.

I then counterbore the holes to fit the screw heads.

Screw the handle material down tightly and check fit. If you’re happy you can flatten the materials down to the same level. I also grind the protruding screws flush with each liner.

I then screw the liners together, grind the screws flush again and attach the bolsters and micarta again. Now it’s all one piece you can grind all the way around the profile to make everything match. If all goes well you should end up with tight a fitting dovetail that’s pretty easy on the eye
