I took Roy Underhill’s hand tool only class on making a tool chest. It was a wonderful class and I learned a great deal. I highly recommend his classes. We learned about many hand tools and built a dovetailed tool chest. In class I finished the chest and only had to assemble it at home because it had to ship knocked down. The lid I am fitting together and should glue it tomorrow night.
This is a picture of fitting the first section of skirt on to the top portion of the side.
This is the chest with the skirt and bottom attached.
This is a close up of the hand cut dovetails with out any wedges. Roy and his assistant Bill are great teachers because I did not have this skill when I came to class.
