I made one similar. Love that name! Looks good with the dovetails. Mine was only pocket screwed (one of my learning things). If I made it over I do it your way. Very nice work jamie

Kaleb, I’m putting these into production and that will have lessdetail as it is a lot of abrading. It will be more Box Joint thanthe G&G style fingers. I did this in 3” widths so as there was not actualfinger joint making, a very easy build, but Shirley thinks it took a week.Jamie

What a great idea! Give your lady something to hold onto! And it doesn’t matter if your right or left handed! A step up from most I have seen! Nice job! Now that you have that job done you can send me all that lumber on the floor! :)

Love this one Jamie. The design and build look wonderful and arts and crafts all at the same time. The handle thingy is really a great safety idea too. It’s smooth look makes you want to run your hand over it. I’m sure my wife would appreciated something like this.
