I am working on a project that I was planning on using either through or half blind dovetails, however the grain is so incredible that i wanted it to wrap around the carcass. I figured I should practice on some scrap before I tried it on the real thing. This is my first effort.

Looking good Wes,Are you going to take it a step further and close the ends completely.

I think it’s called a Secret mitered Dovetail.

Having just the pins showing is pretty cool.

I don’t think so, i really like seeing the pin and still being able to see the grain wrap around the corner

Sorry I missed this when first posted. Looks great, and I agree it really lets the grain speak loudest!
