« Part 2: Box progress today Part 3 of Making boxes with dovetailed splines without a Kehoe jig series no next part

I finally completed the boxes. I lined the inside bottom of the boxes with tobacco colored pigskin. On the two walnut boxes I cut 9/16 leather circles and superglued to the bottom at the corners to protect dresser tops etc. The maple chest has button feet made from maple hole plugs that look like very short mushrooms. Sorry no photos of the feet and bottoms.
