Paul moves onto laying out the top trim. He then cuts the dovetails and fits and glues the trim onto the box. With both the trims done, Paul edge joints some stock for the lid of the box using timber dogs. With that set aside, it is time to clean up the trim in preparation for fitting the bottom.

    I’m sure I’ve seen the pinch dog part before…

    Another great vide, I defiantly need to buy some pinch dogs, I do believe Lee Valley sells them.

    Interesting seeing the pinch dogs in action. If you were using hardwood, would you be concerned about the pinch dogs splitting the wood (they have quite big tangs!) Would you pre-drill the wood to accept the dog?

    Great video, as always!

    I wonder if you could make pinchdogs out of old circular saw blade steel. Plenty of that floating around. Might give it a go.

    This project is coming together quite nicely. I am so looking forward to putting some tools in mine. The most exciting thing that I think about now is knowing how long will our work be around for our family to admire. This really is exciting to me. Thank you .

    There is an article on Paul’s blog on how to make these dogs
