Dovetail Boxes – August 2014

I was joined by studentsĀ Jared Reasy and Dr. Ed Perlstein for three days of dovetail box making, Aug 15-17. Our goal was a simple but elegant hand dovetailed box with a removable, solid lid. We used some nice cherry for the boxes, with a touch of sapwood around the bottom, and a bookmatched cherry lid. We made a pileĀ of practice joints before diving into the real deal, with excellent results. Dovetails done well are all about care, patience and technique. This class was a real pleasure, one of my favorite things.
