Make A Dovetail Box
In this class we build a small dovetailed box with a solid, unhinged lid and internal tray (similar to the box pictured). The finished box is approximately 4″h x 6″w x 10″l. Stock will be pre-milled so that maximum time can be devoted to honing dovetail and other skills in the making of the box. Besides hand-cut dovetails, techniques used to complete the box edge joining, surface planing, carving and mortising pulls, and finishing with shellac. Wood selection and resawing will be discussed and demonstrated.
40 hours of instruction, by appointment only
