This is my first dovetailed box. I built it for a Christmas present but really that’s just a good excuse to do something I’ve been wanting to do anyway. This is my first set of handcut dovetails for any complete project. It’s also my first time working with cherry or maple. The finish is BLO and wax. The inside is completely unfinished. The bottom is crushed velvet inside and out. No sandpaper touched this project at any point. Everything is straight off the smoother. That last shot is in natural sunlight. Funny how much different it looks, eh?
