Winner in Show!

No, unfortunately not me! This fine blanket chest won the apprentice category in the Texas furniture show.

The dovetails were cut using one of my magnetic guides. I certainly wouldn't have wanted to attempt cutting this many dovetails, in wood this thick, totally free hand.

The execution is very crisp, well done John!


  1. Hi David...

    Good work Winner..

    **my magnetic guides** Not look your Blog...

    Remember I do not speak English, sometimes hard to read and see ok! Sorry.

    Show me the way.

  2. Excellent work John! You really deserve to be selected for it. The chest is neat, sleek, refined and have a very good finish, perfect to serve as a chest and a table.
