« Part 3: Flattening the Sides Part 4 of Shaker Blanket Box series Part 5: Base Mouldings »

For a while I didn’t think the toy chests would be made in time, but after two busy days in the shop, it looks like the kids will have toy chest come Christmas. The dovetails dry fitted together and look good. I was very pleased that the first few slide together without fine tuning, but was disappointed by some that needed a bit more work. The apprentice didn’t seem to notice though.

More info and photos on my blog.

With that many pins & tails, I’d be surprised if a few DIDN’T need a bit of work. Looking good!
