Dovetail Competition! AWR Magazine.

I subscribe to Australian Wood Review (AWR) magazine which comes out quarterly, it's a good read.  When I saw they  had a dovetailing competition called 'So you think you can dovetail' I had to send in a picture. This is a small chest in birds eye maple, curly maple and spalted maple, with an African black wood pull. It measures 20" x 10" x 8" high. You can view the entries at the link below where you can vote for your favourite. If you want to submit a photo the deadline is 12th April.


  1. You got a vote from me mate. Any chance for England to beat Oz is worthwhile in my book.

  2. Beautiful work as always. How big is the box? I love what you did for the pull. Very nice to see different types of maple on one piece. You got my vote.

    1. Hi Joshua, thanks for your comments and your vote, the box is 20" x 10" x 8" high. I like using wood from one species which shows the variety within it. All the best, David.
