Here’s my first attempt at dovetail keys. I made the box for my wife for Christmas. Like most everyone, money was a little tight, but I wanted a special giift for her. I’ve done very little carving before, but found it to be a lot of fun. The top is a special piece of Cherry my son found while doing a cabinet door job. I sort of hijacked it. The sides have some great figure also. Note the birdseye pattern in the cross and heart. The carving was designed around it.
