This is my first attempt at a dovetail box. I’m really satisfied with the tolerances of the 1/2 blind dovetails joints (done with an Incra jig).
Specs: 9” x 5” x 4” high. Maple and Walnut main case components. Mahogany top stripe and inside of lid. Walnut lift tab. Used a wiping oil for finish (still needs another coat or 2 and some wax).
I was originally planning for a lined bottom but now favor the way the Walnut looks.
The fine boxes found here on LJ’s have definitely inspired me. Thank you all.
