Third box I made, fir and cedar again, hand cut dovetails.

Nice box and great job at hand cutting dovetails. I should take a lesson from you as I have never cut one by hand!!

Thanks Jim, what you don’t see is the 5 gallon bucket of scrap wood with all the practice dovetails. I just watched a bunch of youtube videos, then bought Paul Sellers books, got myself some chisels and a dozuki and started hacking away. Two weeks and 5 trees later, I got a good result.

Another great looking and well crafted box. Like the pretty grains on wood and those amazing dovetails.
