A small dovetailed pine box.

By | April 25, 2019

So, the second box I built with the new dovetail jig was made from 1×6 pine for the sides and cut down 1×12 pine for the top and bottom. I haven’t finished the dovetail box yet for the jig itself, but have finished this one. While it isn’t perfect, I thought it came out ok for the second attempt.

Small box sides cut out.

After the box was assembled, the top was cut off, and a cartoon character was engraved on the top. (This is going to be for one of my grandaughters).

The lid was spray painted black.
Sanding most of the paint away…
