had a plank of white oak leftover. Bought a pine 1×6x8’ and a pine 1×6x3’ Didn’t want the corners to be just a nailed together rebate joint. Splay is 22-1/2 Degrees. 1/2” wide dovetails were cut after the ends were miter cut. Handle came from that 1×6x3’ pine board. Overall length is 33-1/2” width is just over 12” from the top of the handle to the bottom, it is about 7-1/2”
Slight round overs at the corners. 7/8” Forstner bit to make the cut out for the finger grip. handle sits in a mortise, and is just nailed in place, no glue. It would be easier to replace that way, IF it should ever break.
Bottom has been beveled to match the sides, and is just nailed in place. Nice little, cheap project. One coat of BLO for a finish. Brushed on, wiped off. Tote will hold full length handsaws.
