This week I share with you a decorative box which features hand cut dovetail joints. This box is made of Mahogany and Pecan and its center piece being a Spalted Pecan Panel Lid.
I am no authority on dovetails joints so I don’t go into a lot of detail on making hand cut dovetail joints. There are a lot of training videos and materials out there to reference off of.
I used some of the pecan Which I had milled from free logs delivered to me by a tree service.
When I re sawed the boards, there was some spalting
so I chose to use parts of these spalted areas which were filled with colorful and decorative grain patterns as the main center piece of the box. I incorporated this into the boxes lid.
Here is a video of the build. I hope you enjoy this project.
