  2. First Attempt at Handcut Through Dovetails

    I've been wanting to try out some of the more traditional joinery methods since I've been perusing this site daily and checking out more advanced skills here and elsewhere on the web. I've been reading a lot (and I mean a lot) about dovetails, box/finger joints, mortises & tenons, etc. online...
  3. Cherry/Wormy Chestnut Storage Case

    A lot of handwork on this case. I left the dovetails and through-tenons proud. Which made sanding and finishing a little fussier, but I like the look. Finished with shellac and pastewax. Some people don't seem to care for pastewax over shellac, but i do.
  4. Baby Cradle

    My wife was shopping for baby things few months back (we were expecting a baby that is now born) and found a nice basket in a baby store. The store was selling some stand for the basket but, obviously, I suggested my wife that I can build a cradle to fit the basket. After some discussions...

  8. Oak and Walnut Dovetailed Box for Katy

    This was for my sister Katy for her birthday and is my first box with my new Veritas 14 tpi dovetail saw. I was able to cut much smaller and tighter dovetails than on my other boxes. I was also using my newly made 1:7 dovetail marker. So far, I've done all my dovetails by eye but I needed...

  10. Bog-wood?

    Ever worked with bog-wood? Please continue reading to find out my thoughts. I've got a commission to make a knife, including a leather sheath to go with it.

  11. Mulberry and apple wood tray with handcut dovetails

    After pulling the apple wood and mulberry out of the kiln yesterday, I felt compelled to plane it down and see what I had. This was the result. It is the same dimensions as the last project that I made, and was lots of fun to build. Mulberry is very easy to work with, which made chiseling out...

  14. Whale-end Shelf

    The whaleend shelf is my second craftsman product and the first I took while attending a workshop at a once-a-weeknight class at a local high school. That was a great way to get into the mindset of becoming a craftsman/woodworker. The top technique I learned was hand-cut dovetails. In much of...

  16. Fir Dovetail Box

    This is the 2nd box i've made in my life time. The wood is reclaimed from Ballpark bench seating (there was a lot of frustration in the "reclaiming" process).

    I call this joinery radial dovetails. If your interested, I have a blog on its construction. The woods used in this box are curly maple, Caribbean rosewood, and hickory. Instead of traditional angles, the dovetails were cut from two perspective points per each corner as you can see below...
  18. Aiden's Dresser

    My son's clothes were scattered between two different chest of drawers. Both chests were o.k. but not much to look at or easy for him to open either. The time came to build something worthwhile for him and perhaps something that will be passed from family member to family member over the...
  19. Figured Maple and Cherry Dovetailed Candlebox

    This is my first dovetailed box. I built it for a Christmas present but really that's just a good excuse to do something I've been wanting to do anyway. This is my first set of handcut dovetails for any complete project. It's also my first time working with cherry or maple. The finish is BLO...
