A simple Wenge and Maple box. hand cut dovetails and some store bought inlay. Brass pins for the bottom. This is the sixth box I’ve made.

That is a nice looking box. Great dovetails too. They can be addicting. The inlay worked nicely, very tasteful

What an awesome job on the dovetails. Flawlessly executed.

Roger, thanks very much. I’m working on a Maple and Spanish Cedar humidor right now that features hand cut dovetails. I’ll be posting it soon…

Thanks Chuck, yeah, newbie woodworker mistake that was, trying to do one of my first projects with Wenge. I saw it in the store and thought, “Wow, that is beautiful” later as I was cutting the pins it was more like “profanity deleted”.
