The previous projects I made were created mostly by borrowing my Grandpas tools. I no longer have his tools at my disposal, and I would like to start leaning more techniques with hand tools.
I made this box to experiment with hand tools. The sides of the box are made form a piece of 2×4 resawn into 3 pieces. The top and bottom are form scrap 1×6’s.
This also is my first attempt of dovetails, and hand cut at that. I miss cut 1/2 of them the wrong way, and the other half chipped.
I also attempted my first inlay. The star is made out of a piece of 1/8 in plywood. To cut it out I scored the design and removed the material with a chisel.
The finish is a few coats of Danish Oil.
All in all the project was lots of fun to do, and now houses my bothers cards against humanity game.
