This is a box for my mother-in-law. My husband worked on the blind dovetail joints using a jig we found on CL. This was our first project after a few practice tries on scrap wood. After making the dovetails I went to the table saw to make the cuts for the box bottom. I thought I had all the pieces arranged but cut the first end piece on the outside rather than inside. To salvage all the dovetail effort I just cut down the height of all the sides to “remove” my error. Ended up being able to use the waste section for the handle! Nice when a mistake can come back into a project. Wood is walnut and poplar.
