This started as just some dovetail practice and turned into something beautiful.
Hand tools only, no electrons were harmed.

Thanks for all the kind words guys.
Last Christmas I started woodworking by buying myself a set of Stanley 750 chisels and by March I had enough hand tools to start building a bench. I built it out of Southern Yellow Pine only using hand tools. It took me a month to complete.
Since then I’ve been doing small shop projects and a lot of practice stuff.
This was my fourth attempt at cutting dovetails and the the only one that was good enough to see through to completion.
I have gained all of my knowledge from what i call “YouTube University”

You can see pictures of my bench build on Instagram, just search for Timmy2Hands

Outstanding work T2H. You may want to look at this thread, you’d be a good candidate.
