Nice Customer Box
Kevin recently came on my dovetailing course and it's great to see him getting straight on with some practice. Through dovetailing on this scale in oak requires some skill, helped along with some nice tools of course!
This is a fairly large box made with some lovely rippled oak (quite rare) and spalted beech panels.
There's a nice delicate finger recess and a pair of strong Brusso hinges for the lid.
Here's a shot of the work in progress showing a nice tool cabinet and good looking home made Moxon vice. With the other tools I can see, this is definitely a bench set up for some serious dovetailing!
