This project has been in the works for a while now. I decided I wanted to learn to hand cut dovetails so I bought a dovetail saw and some decent chisels. Once I had them I didn’t have any place to put them so I found this design for a hand tool cabinet in a popular woodworking project book. The original plans were for Cherry and Spalted Maple, I didn’t have either but i have a bunch of quartersawn white oak and I bought a little curly maple for the accent pieces. The first dovetails here are pretty rough but buy the time I got to the end I was pretty proud of what I was doing. Now I need to buy more hand planes to fill those cubbies.
