This project started out to be just an exercise in box building but when I chose dovetails instead of box joints, it turned into a real effort. A first for the mitered dovetails on the top edge. The scroll saw cut dovetails turned out so well that I decided to add my son’s monogram on the Ambrosia Maple top. It took two days to cut the letters out of Walnut and excavate them into the top using a Dremel, very fine chisels and a razor knife. Delicate, time consuming work.
