This is a box i made to hold all my paint brushes and accessories that were jammed together on a shelf. Now its all in a box that i can easily get to. I used walnut and poplar and hand cut the dovetails and hand chopped the waste out as well. i like the layout i gave the dovetails as i have not seen it done before.

I like it. The only thing can think of, it’s to good just to put brushes in. I have to agree with Woodwrecker they are living in style.

Great looking dovetails. I love the spacing and skinny pins that you used.

Terrific looking dovetails. I’ve had this project on my to-do list for awhile, but you’ve done it with class. Just cause it’s utilitarian doesn’t mean it can’t look great, right?
