Everything about the double dovetail joint is complete. I hope it was cear enough for folks to make their own. Feel free to bug me with questions if you didn’t follow. In summary, it’s just a bunch of half blind joints using a corner piece with the grain perpendicular to the sides. From here on out it’s just another box but I’ll continue to post shots as I go.
Yesterday I lightly sanded the shellac that I previously applied to the inside surfaces of all pieces. Then glued the parts together. After letting that dry overnight I rough sanded the outsides of the box with a belt sander to get all the joints flush. Here’s the box ready for a top and maybe feet:
Next up is building the top. It’s kind of hard to describe what I’m doing so here’s a couple of photos of the pieces that will comprise the top and should provide a rough idea of what it will look like:
And here’s the top glued up. I hope I got enough clamps on it:
