This was good practice cutting dovetails and fitting drawers. I had been keeping odds and ends under my bench in a cardboard box that was half-full of shavings, so I think this is a pretty good upgrade.

I still haven’t gotten half-blind dovetails that are good enough to put on something nice, but I feel like I improved a little with this project. Im going to find one or two more shop boxes to build with them before I try them on something for the house.
