This is the first project where my dovetailing has improved to a point where I personally find it acceptable. I’m starting to get the basic routine into my hands and as I progress I can reduce the margins to my layout lines – saving a lot of paring. Paring that in my case introduce great risk of working past the lines or getting things out of square.
Even though the dovetail box is a small project it contains a lot of different techniques: dovetailing, groove cutting, rebate cutting in the lid, raised panel on the lid and the gouge work forming the thumb recess on the lid.
All in all I learned a lot and look forward to building more boxes.
This one got wrapped up and became a Christmas gift for my brother.
Happy new year 🙂
