The point of this project was to practice my joints, Dovetails on this project. I fail to see the reasoning in practicing joints just so you have more fire wood. It also includes finger joints (which did not work out too well).
Hardly fine furniture or creative box making but a handy accessory none the less. Includes numerous ‘design features’ that I couldn’t be bothered fixing. This was mainly due to the ends are held to the bottom by dovetails and these were the first dovetails I had ever cut. So when errors started appearing in the finger joints that holds the sides on I was not going to recut my very nice FIRST dovetails to fix them. Hence the inclusion of a couple of unintended design features.
It works, a bit too heavy but it does the job.
I am currently working a small version that will be a ‘toy’ for either my son or one of my nephews. If it works out, I will make one for each of them.
