I used recycled Formosan Cedar known locally as “Hinoki” to make this small display case for a friend’s birthday. He is deaf and known for taking pictures of everyone and everything. So, I took pictures of each step of the making of the case from ripping the old lumber to hand cutting the dovetails. Then presented him with the case and a small album of the process for his birthday. This was the first time I have done the pins of my dovetails so narrow at the top. I’m undecided on whether to do them like that again or not. I have no idea what the angles of any of the joinery is as it was all done by eye.
