11. Cut the key stock into lengths about 1/4" longer than the dovetail cuts. Apply glue to the dovetail cuts and slide the keys into them, leaving about 1/8" extra key length at both ends of the dovetail cuts.

After the glue sets, saw off the excess key stock. A special flush-cutting handsaw works well, or you can use a typical handsaw if you protect the box with a sheet of card stock as shown.
