    I made this dovetail box to be used in holding spoons and spatulas and tongs and the like in my kitchen. Not the same size and shape as the ones in the videos, but the same techniques, give or take. At least on the dovetails, anyway. It’s just wiped with some mineral spirits now. I still need to do some touch up and finish it, but here’s the gist of it. Hope this is the right place to post it.

    Thanks Eddy, I’ll add a gallery picture once I get it all finished. I am mixing up some shellac now (for the first time ever) so we’ll see how it turns out. I have 4 colors to test out before I know what color I want to use to finish this piece, and it’s taking a fair bit to dissolve all the flakes.

    Here is a picture with two coats of shellac on it. It’s actually my first attempt at finishing anything ever, and I am bad at taking photos. It’ll probably need some sanding and another coat before I’m happy, I think.

    Cool. I liked the 4 chamfers on the protruding separators. Thanks for sharing.
