Well this is my latest. It is a shelf unit that will hopefully be useful as a communion table for our church.
Bread and wine in shelves and preparation area on top. Pine again and loads of dovetails.

very nice design. its not very clear from the pictures, but i assume that these are 3 stackable units, right?
did you cut all these dovetails by hand?

Great job Andyboy!

I feel a lesson comin on…

Why did you choose to mitre the top corners as opposed to just dovetailing the entire top edges?

Thanks,

Hey Parkerdude, I can’t remember if I replied to you but I mitred the front corners because it added a nice touch [I thought]. The detail of the dovetails is lost in the shelves and I thought at the time mitres might look better. It can be a real curse trying to mitre the whole width of the join.
It is quite easy to do, you just have to know what not to cut.
