This is my FIRST try at handcut dovetails. Just some scrap Red Cedar leftover from another project. About 10” by 10” square. Lid was a glue-up of four boards. The groove for the bottom panel uses a stopped dado. I hogged out most of the stopped dados with a 1/4 ” Forstner bit, then cleaned up with a chisel. An old Stanley backsaw did most of the cutting of the pins. A bandsaw did the same for the tails. Both were cleaned up with a chisel.
