Theses appear to be hand cut dovetails? Do you have the time to do a story wit your work? As I said before “You do some nice work!”

Yes, they are hand cut dovetails. No real story with this piece, which, like all my others, is simply something that I really wanted to make, so I made it. I gave it as gift to someone who appreciates and had a lot of Shaker-style furniture in his house.
Thanks Doc.

Shaker and cherry fit together like a glove. I like the box. It will age off to a lovely color and patina… and will look good forever.
