While unimpressive, this box is a start. It’s the first time doing any woodworking in about 20 years, first time doing dovetails, and first time making anything with hand tools. It’s made out of some pine I found laying around, and the first dovetail took me about four hours to complete! (And the fourth about 45 minutes.) For a first attempt at things, I’m really pleased with it.

Anyway, it’s hanging on the shop pegboard now, helping to keep things orderly.

I was looking at dovetail saws last night… thinking that if I buy it, I’ll actually have to cut dovetails… nice work!

-- I do this for fun.

Have your say...
