« Part 4: Dovetailing (NPDH) Part 5 of Woodworking Awards 2008 - 2x4 series Part 6: And the beat goes on »

Ok . . . I have been put under tremendous peer pressure to provide pics because of the NPDH rule.

Not making dust this evening but I did convince DW to take a few snaps. Note to self – get DW new digital camera so I can inherit hers.

The first two pics show my first ever attempt at hand cut dovetails. I am happy with the way it came out. I just have to practice more to get better.



Here are two pics of Project X. The top snap shows the top section of Project X. There is one dovetail in each corner. The three pieces laid across it will make up part of the bottom. There will be two dovetails connecting these pieces. Oh . .. the dark box in the background was my Xmas gift from my parents – my grandfathers 1949 Record Multi-Plane. All the pieces are there including the instruction booklet. But I will blog it in more detail later.


The next picture used to be a 2×4 (minus the wood in the picture above). The pile on the left will complete Project X and the stuff on the right will make the Project X clone.



Now can I be cut some slack? :-)

That’s a nice looking dovetail. I’m looking forward to seeing Project X completed.

Zuki.. A tear came to my eye.. :) Looks like you have some good progress. I haven’t been able to get out to the shop at all in the past couple of days, but hopefully will have time this weekend.

I’ve been working on another project with another LumberJock on a joint project. So I’ve been goofing off on my own shop work.

Great set of pictures.
