Dovetails, originally uploaded by Richard Magbanua.

This is one of several boxes I've made while learning to cut dovetails by hand. The dovetails aren't getting much better as a whole. Some are really good while others look like, well, crap. I made a nice dovetailing layout guide out of some apple wood that works really well and speeds up layouts and I changed my coping saw so it cuts on the push which I like better. I think I need improve how I clean up the cuts with the chisels as well as sawing to the line. Now I have to figure out what I'm gonna use this one for. Box, shelf, planter...?
