I’ve been working on a knitting box (as inspired by AJS and wwmm.com).
Everything is together except the little drawer. As the tail end will never be seen, I thought it a great op to attempt my first dovetails. I was very happy with the results. I only screwed up once, having to replace a piece. I can live with that. This part of the box is made from left over oak.
I did mine on a router table. The layout was easy, although I screwed up the centering. The tough part for moi, was figuring out how to cut the pins. The tails are easy, just buy a dovetail bit.
Hopefully, when the entire project is complete it will be worthy of posting. Cheers!
