My first attempt at dovetails.
I made this out of quartersawn oak with handcut dovetails. The finish is Old Masters dark walnut stain, and Old Masters oil-based brushing lacquer colored with a little ‘amber-honey’ Transtint dye.

Nice looking dovetails, you are way ahead of me on that front. This makes a very nice display cabinet for your collection.

Actually that’s just the tip of the iceberg of my pottery collection. I had to build this to make some room in my cabinets!

Hand cut dovetails, indeed. I have yet to master router/jig cut dovetails. Braggert!
Nicely done and finished beautifully.

Thanks for the compliments. I always appreciate it coming from a fellow Reaganite. I’m about to puke listening to Bill Clinton’s speech right now. He won’t shut up or stop making things up.
