your right about that wood.. i turned a small bowl with some and took longer to sand to 600 grit then it did to resharpen my tools..

way better then good looking for a 1st box.. hand cut dovetails?

-- It's not a sickness, i can stop buying tools anytime.

Thanks. Yes, John they are hand cut dovetails. I decided not to plug any gaps in the dovetails since the box still has a rough sawn appearance, I thought the slightly gappy dovetails looked appropriate.

Have your say...
