Made this chest for the guest room at my cabin. i made the plans up myself using some ideas from past projects. I own an akeda blanket chest dovetail jig but did not use it this time. You can see from the pics how much i practiced …and practiced….and practiced some more. Each sample took about a hour so I would do one a night. First they where to loose than they where to tight….very hard to get them so you can put the chest together than take it apart before glue up. I did make some little helping blocks that where a big help and I think if you would give them a try your dovetails will get better no matter how many you have done before.
The dovetails are 14 degrees.
finish…blo…garnet shelac…water base poly gloss
found a site on the internet to make the covered pad (40 dollars )...any size you want and any density many different materials
