A hybrid of paul’s newer desktop organizer with the older 2-drawer tool organizer. Thats funny, because im not an organized man at all. Carcass made from Cedrinho (translates from portuguese as “little cedar”, but its a hardwood – although a rather light and not so hard one) and the drawer fronts and breadboard-end edges are Angelim Pedra (stone-Angelim. Yes, it is as hard to mill as the name implies.) Finished with a self concocted Danish Oil (1/3 boiled linseed oil 1/3tung oil 1/3 mineral spirits), topped with 3 coats of amber/dark orange shellac (only one which I had access to. Both finishes darkened the wood quite a lot. The Cedrinho is a quite clear toned, bland wood, which came to life quite aurprisingly with the shellac over the oil (the oil alone didn’t gave it too much color or grain contrast) and the angelim was an orange-pinkish, quite clear too, and became this rich reddish-brown. The top and drawer fronts are “french half-polished” as I kind of gave up midway because I was unsure of what I was doing. But I liked the end result anyway. This was my first dovetailed carcass, first half blind dovetails, second breadboard ends (man, those things are hard to make. the joint lines are pretty gappy at the top- and thats the good side up!).

    THANK YOU Paul Stephen!

    It was nice to see that I am not alone in doing just that.
    It was just an organiser insert for a kitchen drawer – easy piecey, just slam it together and the exact same thing happened. No worries, I could redo it by gluing in a few slithers and recut, but lesson learned. I’m not likely to do that again!

      My first drawbore tenon was a “pushbore” one. I bored the hole further away from the shoulder. When I hammered in the dowel, it pushed the tenon out 🙂

      I think its awesome to put those “whooops” (in Paul’s “whoops” voice) photos. I keep a dovetail attempt exactly like that one in an easy to see place in my garage shop. Been thinking of fixing it to the wall as a sort of “s-shaped” shelf. I chuckle everytime I look at it.

      I once cut dovetails with the angles backward, so the outside of the tail was narrower than the inside. That box ended up a little shorter than intended 🙂
