I have been in the need for a larger tobacco box. My pipes, cigars and loose tobacco have out grown my old box. It the video I take cypress dovetail and cut the dadoes by hand. The galoot level of this project is high. I also remove the rust from an old wrench and horseshoe. The shoe is for hanging above my anvil to poor the luck in to the projects I am building. The shoe was found at an antebellum home near Vicksburg MS.


I will be posting this as a project as well.
Thank you.

Hi Dave. Thanks for the entertaining and instructive video. Very nice work on the dovetails and and all the rest too. I am wondering if that wrench is a pipe wrench except I didn’t see any teeth on the jaws.

Randy, Noooooooooooo! I like my pipe and a good cigar. The cigarets are just convenient.
Thanks Pres!

Mike it what I think a plumping wrench. Made for square objects. My dad called them a monkey wrench. There are no teeth. I need it for twisting square stock while forging. I have a small one and needed one for bigger stock. I just filled the handle with 24 hour resin and did not get all the holes plugged up. What a sticky mess. I will be pealling plastic off for the next few days. Oh well.

Thank you Mr. Jewelery maker.

Have a great year guys.

Nice box. You could not have bought one nice as that one these days.
You are rubbing off on me too much though.
You told me a long time ago that one day my house would be filled with my wood working projects.
I told you that wouldn’t happen because I did not consider any of my work nice enough.
Well I was sitting in here yesterday and noticed something.
My house is getting full of my wood working projects.
You can’t look in any direction without seeing something I built.
Back to the box now.
Hand cut dovetailed make make anything, even a simple tobacco box, look elegant.
And you sir, are the master at hand cut dove tails.
Great job.

William you make me smile. Now you have me looking around my house and the I have the same problem. You know what else, there are a few of your pieces here as well. Knowing that I think there should be a piece of mine at yours.
Thank you William you are a kind friend.

Well Dave, I’ve had flights delayed for weather, mechanical problems, and missing flight crew, but tonight was the first time for all three.

Sitting here with a Jack and you’re videos and I don’t care. Good job my friend.

Good luck and dream of tools.

I have spent a lot of time personalizing my shop. All I need now is a hammock. I think I want to tie one myself. With some good wood for the header and footer.
