Hello. My name is Jared, and I have a woodworking problem. You see there aren't enough hours in a day to enjoy this craft, though I try and squeeze as many as I can out of it.

Working this way just feels more honest to me.

Its kind of a jump from my last post, and I had tons of other pics of the construction. But the computer with all those pics died. So these new ones are what I have left. THe rest of the build was pretty staightforward. I dovetailed a narrow skirt...
Laying out lid parts for marking. Marking from the piece being used, instead of measuring and worrying about numbers allows you to be way more accurate. Squaring up the panel. I cut right on the line this time. Practice really...
