This was for my sister-in-law. I’ve been doing some quick and dirty things for around my house, so it was fun to slow down and try to do something a little nicer.

The dovetails were a little fancy and I didn’t get the angled baselines perfect, but after the shellac went on I think they came out pretty well. This was also my first time trying to round the sides like this. Again, I think I’ll get them better next time, but I think these came out OK.

I like the raised panel for the lid and the rounded/shaped sides.
I’m sure your sister in law will too.
The dovetails are a great touch!
