I have finally been inspired to attempt something new after spending loads of time admiring the talent, skill, and inventive imagination of contributors to this site.
I was particularly inspired by GaryK’s Storage Box For Joinery project.
I have been contemplating the construction of a Captain's Writing Box, complete with secret compartments and I’d like to used several different types of joinery. I saw a reference to full-blind dovetails while hunting thru the internet and think that they might be used to make a very clean and super-strong corner joint.
My questions are:
Has anyone ever seen full-blind dovetails used in a project? Examples, pictures, websites?
I was thinking about designing a jig that would allow them to be created using a router but I need to understand how they are created first in order to see if my idea will bail the bilges (hold water).
Thanks in advance for everyone’s comments, instruction, ideas, and criticisms.
