This is a commission I’ve just completed. It took three times longer than I estimated because I chose to secure all the partitions with hand cut French dovetails. I did use a router to make the female part of the joint because they are stopped short of the front. The intent was to make the wine rack removable, but it fit so tightly that simply won’t be possible now. It is stained with Golden Pecan and topped with two coats rubbed lacquer.

Nice job Dan! IMHO, once you get used to it cutting all the dovetails by hand is a lot quicker!
Down in s.africa. Lots of great woods down here, most I never heard of. Too bad I can’t take them home.

You made a fantastic job of that Dan. The wine rack is very impressive.

A beautiful piece, Dan.
That’s a ton of DTs, but should hold up to a lifetime of use.
