This is a traditional spice box including a hidden drawer. I chose this project because I needed some practice on hand cut dovetails. 12 drawers and case all dovetailed, I think I got plenty of practice. I call it my Angel box because instead of putting my Initials on the drawers I carved an Angel. There is a small knot in the top so I will enter this in both contest. I think leaving knots and wood coloration’s makes a project unique.

Beautiful ! Nice job on the dovetails, nothing better than the hand cut ones.
