The Box

Box1 Box2At college we were given a project to make a box. I chose to make a fairly simple box in design, I really just wanted an excuse to practice making Dovetails! Well, I got what I wanted. For weeks all I did was cut dovetails. I didn’t have as much Elm as I’d have liked either, so originally all the sides had the grain running vertically (across the dovetails) which I quickly realised was a big mistake. So I ended up doing all the dovetails twice basically, which is fine, I went from being totally rubbish at it, to vaguely passable 🙂
