Argh!!!
Made the box. Cut the dovetails.
Marked the curve and made the cutter oversize.
Copy to clipboard. Delete the cutter.
Hide the ends (didn't bother to rotate but I've done it.)
Open a side for editing. Edit-> Paste in Place. Everything now within Edit box.
Edit-> Intersect faces with Selection
"No intersections found between selection set
and the rest of the model"

Tried again- same thing

Probably a simple answer- usually is

Did you make the cutter a component before copying it to the clipboard? Why did you delete the cutter after copying it?

No, it's not a component.
I deleted the cutter after copying it so I could open the side for editing and then paste the cutter back in place.
Was that the wrong way?

Well, there's no need to delete it after copying it. Just open the side component for editing and use Paste in Place. If you tick the Hide boxes in Model Info>Components, the original cutter geometry won't be visible when you are editing the component.

Dave-
I seem to have it working, appreciate your assistance.
We talked about the change from SU Make to SU Free- if I heard you correctly, you said that Make would be continued on offer, but not updated after 2017- did I hear you correctly? Because when I go onto SU.com, I don't see any reference to Make anywhere. Could you clarify? thanx

You did hear that right. SketchUp 2017 Make will continue to be available for hobbyist use from SketchUp.com/download/all. Of course anyone using SketchUp in their business will need to use SketchUp Pro and should probably be using SketchUp 2018 Pro at this point.

Is it correct that one takes the Pro trial and then after 30 days can licence Make?

There is no Make 2018 version. If you install SketchUp 2018 Pro, you'll get a 30 Day trial period. If you choose not to purchase the license, it will be dead in the water after the trial period expires.
