Dovetailed box

This is the first project that came off the D4 dovetail jig. In the manual that comes with the jig, they take you through a practice run on the jig by creating a small box with through dovetails.

I decided to take it a step further. I added a chamfer on the top, a divider in the middle, and a bottom set in a groove on all four sides. It was a fun, quick project that came out much better than I had expected. I added four stick-on feet to the bottom, and today it serves as a remote caddy for my father.

The box is made out of poplar and finished with a pecan stain and a few coats of shellac. I can’t remember the measurements, its been a long time. One of these days, I should make one for myself.

Enjoy,
