This is my most recent box that I just finished. It is made from the red oak leftovers from my clock. I decided that I would finally give hand cut dovetails a try. I was a little reluctant at first but then as I started cutting them, I realised that it wasn’t too difficult. I also tried something else I haven’t done before on my boxes. I decided to put a roman ogee on the lid and the bottom with a router. The finish is a red mahogany stain with 2 coats of shellac. I really enjoyed trying hand cut joinery for the first time and look forward to doing more. Thanks for looking!
