« Part 1: The beginning Part 2 of Building my version of the Essential Tool Chest series Part 3: Carcase is done »

The dovetails and mortise and tenons on the carcase are done. My dovetails are getting better. Practice does make a difference.

Tails done time for pins

Its square.

Cutting the mortises. The tape makes the knife marks easier to see,

A little touchup on one end and we can cut and fit the panels front and rear.

Looks very nice. I made one out of Butternut and Mahogany about a year ago as a gift to my grandson. It was a fun build.
