This is the first attempt of the half dovetail joint on a box .
The joint is the one I used previously on some posts I made for a garden arbour

The box I made turned out good and it was easy clamping with four clamps .
All the joints including the bottom are cut at 10 degree which seems to work good.
This was a fun night to spend in the shop just playing with wood and it actually turned into a good project which is my entry project into a LJ club guess which one .

I’d like to see it assembled and finished : )

I guess I am looking at these backward. Looks like your dovetail is a sliding one.

Yeah, I had to look at the assembled bottle balancer to get it. Well done. I like the idea… neat way to make a wine presentation gift box.
