Dovetail Therapy!

I was due to start a well overdue batch of high angle smoothers but decided to enjoy myself instead!
Here's a small run of desk boxes with all 112 dovetails cut and fitted, which took 7 1/2 hours of concentration. This afternoon I remembered one of James Krenov's quotations 'It's not work I enjoy but working accurately'
Each box is in a different wood, from the front, brown oak, American walnut, English walnut and European oak. The first three were all air dried and much easier to work. The European oak was brittle and required extra care. I have matching burrs lined up for the panels on each of these, more of that another day.
