Hey guys,

So I’ve had chance to do and film another project.

This time I wanted a knockout box for my coffee making. So I decided to make a dovetail box to hold the spent grounds.

Here’s how it turned out:

Nicely done. The freehand dovetails turned out pretty good. I like the way the whole thing looks.

I did the same with some soft pine scraps the other day. The pine doesn’t like being chiseled all that much. Still, turned out fine for what I needed.

Love your workspace.

Thanks for the feedback, I really appreciate it. I need more practice with dovetails as these needed a bit of tweaking, but overall I’m really happy with the finished box.

Have your say...
