Apologies for the poor photo quality…
This is my first attempt at some serious woodworking; I am always doing some form of DIY related woodwork but have never attempted something quite like this.
I started the project about three years ago with the grand plan of giving it to my mum for her birthday that year. Unfortunately around the same time I got married and bought our first house, consequently other projects took up my time and the project ended up sitting in a cupboard for years. Now that we are settled into our home I decided I would crack on and get the project finished. This is me just finished it now, just in time for mums birthday this year.
I decided to go for a simple box design but opted for dovetailed joints and a veneered top to try and test myself. The project certainly proved challenging and there are several parts of the project I would like to of improved on but then I really would of been at it forever. Now I just need to work out what to attempt next…
