Gallery Goodness, 8th February 2018
Oh, wow! It has been a bumper month for the photo gallery. Thank you very much for sending them all in! These pictures are a window into a whole world of people with the gumption to get cracking on a project and stick with it until something fantastic emerges. There’s a lot more to see in the galleries and we’ll be collecting up some more of the latest submissions next week.
Dovetail Box by Stellmacher
Small pens and notepad crate As a Christmas present, I made this little box for storing notepads and pens. Actually, I do not have to write much, everything was made by hand and connected with dovetails. There really were no electrical machines involved. The rounded edges on the bottom I made, for example with a Stanley # 4.

Joiner’s Mallet by Russell Holland
Yew and ash mallet made for a friend’s birthday. He’d cut the yew about 8 years ago and had a nice knotty piece of trunk left. The ash handle was from firewood he’d cut this winter. This was my second mallet – I am just starting out, but it is a really satisfying project to take from tree to finished object. Thanks for the instruction – it is much appreciated!

Kudos to all, many beautiful items here!
I am trying to understand the joint in Halkjel’s “Tool Chest”, the one for the separator between the two drawers. Maybe there is no joint, but rather a decoration scribed onto the surface where the divider meets the side panel?
Looks like a through dovetail, perhaps the endgrain is light and isn’t showing well in the picture.
For what i saw , it is a dado with an edging that imitate the dovetail joint . That is why we do not see the dovetail on the side . What a great eye catcher ! Nicely done Halkjel 😉👍🏼
