    Did a "class project"....using just some Pine scraps..to learn how to make a Double lap Dovetail joint

    remember, this is just out of a scrap of Pine..

    And, more about learning to make the dovetail corners...won't win any Beauty Contests...not out of any fancy wood...

    Just a "Dovetail Class" project...3-1/4" tall, by 7" across the front, by 6" on the sides....

    Just something to do, between building other projects...

I'm currently applying finish and will post pics after the finish is done. The first coat of finish has really transformed the piece and has elevated the contrast between the cherry and wenge. The cabinets in our mud room are stained black hence why I chose such a dark wood for the drawer fronts.

    Very Nice Tony! I love the details: through, wedged M&T's with contrasting wedges, the "bowl" depression carved in the top shelf and the cool drawer pull openings! Definitely a project fellow woodworkers will notice and admire. Well done!

    Had a how-to thread going...
    Dovetail Class, Day 2, four chopped.JPG
    Pins first seems to work best on these...makes it easier to lat out the tails..
    Dovetail Class, Day 2, four tails done.JPG
    Then slide the two together...
    Dovetail Class, Day 4, dry fit #4.JPG
    And you wind up with a corner like this..
    Dovetail Class, Day 4, better gap.JPG
    From the side/top....and from the edge..
    Dovetail Class, Day 4, end grain showing.JPG
    And...if you don't over cut...the insides will look like this
    Dovetail Class, Day 2, dry fit 1.JPG

    making someone else wonder how it is all held together....with just glue....
