I just bought this awesome dovetail jig and I was looking for something cool to build with it, meanwhile a friend asked me if I can build him simple wooden box for his new espresso machine.. so I decided to build it a bit different..

this is my first dovetail experience so if you have some advices for next time please write.

Why did you cut the steel plate (3’05”) the size of the bottom?

Cool box and I like the speed of your video!

thanks..

I placed it between two layers of wood at the bottom to give it enough wight to prevent movement when i knock the coffee handle..

Nice project and I really liked how well the carved letters came out. It looks like they could have been done with a CNC machine.
