I was looking for a nice project for my brother and brother in law for xmas and found this valet on here by Blake:

The bodies of the valet are made from a nice piece of figured cherry and the top is curly maple. The finish is oil. I don’t know how to cut dovetails so i just used a pinned rabbet for the front and the back which I think turned out pretty nice. I got the leather from an xxl leather jacket from the goodwill for 5 dollars. This jacket will provide me with enough leather for plenty of boxes. Please go to the original thread to learn more about building the project.

Great set of valets. The leather adds a nice touch.
