My first finished dovetail box. I started on this box with not much of a plan for the lid or box bottom, so I struggled with what to do. I had a small piece of brazillian cherry and oak left and instead of having to glue up panels of brazilian cherry to make a lid, this is what I came up with. This originally started out to be a sliding pencil box and I started the project making complete dovetails all the way to top leaving no room for the sliding top, soooo, needless to say, it became a keepsake box instead. haha. The finish is 1/3 BLO, 1/3 Paint Thinner, 1/3 spar varnish. Not a bad finish just takes FOREVER to dry, but looks nice and applies easily.
