My first experience with Oklahoma elm and dovetail splines. The elm was kind of ‘stringy’ but worked well. I really like the grain pattern and color. First dovetail splines and they weren’t as easy as I thought but came out well. I filled the wormy areas on the outside of the box and left them on the inside. Walnut ‘Shipwright’ hinge is 3/8” thick. Finished with shellac and wax.
