The joinery for the case and feet are hand cut dovetails. Both the front and the lid are made from single, wide, walnut boards. The lid has bread board ends mitered to front edge molding. Constructed over one week at Lonnie Bird’s School in Dandridge, TN. Simple, but enjoyable design. I plan to make another soon.

Looks great, Doc. What are the dimensions, so I can be truly in awe over the single, wide, walnut boards ?
