I decided to make some shelves to hold some of my tools. They needed to be very sturdy, so I made them out of 7/8 inch poplar and used hand cut dovetails for the joints. I left the tails long for effect. They hold a lot of weight and have been a great way to organize my shop a bit. Thanks for looking.

Nice looking joints. Too nice for just a tool shelf, but you will smile every time you retrieve something from that spot.

These are great, Walden. Fine work. Maybe too fine to be holding a Home Depot bucket.
