I have been commisioned by a young man who is an ameture astronomer to build for him an eyepiece box. That is, a box that will hold all of his eyepieces, his filters and his maps without any damage to the pieces.
He travels with his telescopes every year to SC, I believe, so it needs to be secure enough to not open up on him and to withstand an accidental tumble or two.
I have had to learn how to use a dovetail jig and have done pretty well with it. However, due to my lack of proper planning, I have found that I will have to hide the corners because of some channeling mistakes I made on the inside of the box.
I am sure that the end result will far exceed my expectations, so I am very hopeful.
As soon as I have a moment to figure out how to embed photos, I will begin to add them as I progress.
