A study on compound angle dovetails. Been wanting to try them, and thought Roy Underhill’s tool tote was a good specimen to copy. Couldn’t resist dolling it up a bit, though. I’m really pleased with the curves and the rounded-over tops of the sides and handle. The curve of the handle is a little more dramatic and severe than I intended, but I think it fits in with the overall look. Overall I’m happy with the size and proportions.

Familiar? Really? I’ve never seen another one like it.
