This is a Christmas gift for a friend’s son. Made with cherry, purpleheart and maple. First time I’ve made something like this. Also a first on the hand cut dovetails. Lots of learning on this. The finish is tung oil and paste wax.
Just because someone on YouTube does a video on cutting dovetails by hand and makes it look easy, doesn’t mean it is easy. I can see where practice makes perfect. Even by the fourth side, I was getting better. Only a few hundred more to go before I will get good.
If anything, I hope this inspires him to become interested in making things and hopefully even hand made things.
Cheers and Merry Christmas,
