How did you cut the wedged dowels by hand or what? your box is looking great though. A truly very nice box. I am just starting a new box of my own design for Bronwen,to enjoy while she recuperates at home while I try my best to spoil her while looking after her.I love that woman like crazy still after all these years .Alistair

Thanks a lot for such positive feedback, I truly appreciate it.
YorkshireStewart, when you make everything by hand it can swear it takes longer but the results for me are better. This piece took about 100 hours along two months.
SCOTSMAN, everything I do is painstakingly handmade and I mean all of the proccess, from the mill to the final product I use handplanes, backsaws and chisels, that´s the way I teach to the students who come to Aula Flamingo. I have realized I take advantage of the handtools beyond the power tools or machinery and I like to keep the old school. So yes I do, the wedges are made by hand too sir.You can see other of the projects I have posted in lumberjocks and I know you won´t believe every component is prepared and planed by hand, can you imagine a whole workbench built this way ? Thank you for your support.
Has anybody watched the video about the secret opening ?
