Great looking sugar chest! You did a beautiful job on this piece. I would have never guessed that a person could do wood working and be totally blind. I admire you and your accomplishments. Thanks you for posting.

God Bless

thanks Gary, I used the katie jig for the dovetails, what do you think of the tail spacing. Also as you know I am blind how did the dye come out. I figured dye is easier to not mess up as compared to oil stain and maple is a nice figured wood any way.

Have your say...
