Just finished up these three caddys out of “painted” poplar. The finish is water based poly then sanded with micro mesh products.

I added a few more pictures.

I machine cut the dovetails with a Leigh Dovetail Jig and a Porter Cable router, hand cut the rabbits for the other interior joinery, used a hand plane to taper the bottom to fit in a rabbit around the base which was cut on the router table.

Well they looks good. Many years of use and abuse they will endure.
