I recently bought some butt-chisels.
So I needed a place to store them.

I made this box/tray from pine, meranti and burl cherry.
The box is lined with dark blue felt.

I made a saw-mistake when I was cutting the tails. In a hurry, the saw cuts the endgrain of the tail.
But I decided to let it go. You can see it in one of the pictures.

Everything was done by hand, except the rough milling of the stock on the table saw.

Any comments are wellcome.

Thanx for watching.

Having just started my foray into hand cut dovetails, I can only say that I hope my joints will someday look as good as yours. Nice work!

P.S. I am sending this comment from Eindhoven, where I am on business this week. :)

I hope you will enjoy Holland. I live in the east. Otherwise you can get a coffee!
I’m still practising dovetails, for about 1 year now. Some questions are welcome. But I’m a starter too.
Greetz! Have a nice weekend.

You’ve made a beautiful tray. The chisels and the tray look too nice to use.
