I did it!

I’m working on a jewerly box for my niece.  She just graduated from High School and I wanted to make something for her to take to college with her.

I also want to use dovetails with a mitred corners so that the top joinery will look nice.  Here’s my practice piece.

Here’s the video where Chris demonstrates how to do it.

  1. That is totally awesome! talk about taking it up a level. Very nice work. (And this is why we have nieces, nephews and grand kids – to allow us the chance to make all these heirlooms )

    1. Agreed! I’m going to have the house furniture done some day in the next few years, but I love the excuse to do something for someone else.
