I am in the process of building kitchen cabinets and I wanted to practice making dovetail joints before I began building the drawers. So, I incorporated that joint into these boxes that I made as Christmas gifts for friends and family. The contrasting woods are maple and sapele. I used the MLCS through dovetail template and a router to make the dovetails. Relatively easy once the template was properly adjusted. I built a template for the elliptical top oening and cut it with a flush-trim pattern bit. Now my family members can think of me every time they blow their noses.
