ok been in the shop and this is what ive come up with 1st up is a georgia heartpine 24”x24”x26”
nothing special but for my second attempt at hand cut dovetails (first one went together as well )
much happierwith these if any wood workers out there havent hand cut dovetails before i highly recoomend it the final fit is pure nectar yea they got jigs but there is somthing to be said about sucessfully pulling off hand cut dovetails there is just somthing natural about it … like feeding chickens [*note for you seasoned dove tailers of one i am not please for give my enthusiasm ] and to be totally forth coming i have three full days in just these two box drawers but intend to trim that tremedously as i stated second attempt..

Beautiful dovetails! Also, I like the rustic look combined with the wicked tight joinery.

Hand cut…, very nice. I have only done it on scrap, never in a ‘real’ project. Nice job.

I can feel your excitement (and justified pride) in the dovetails! Well done.

Absolutely love the table.

I don’t know, I think feeding chickens would be easier than hand cut dove tails, but you make it look easy.
