Working through ideas for potential projects meant for a small woodworking class, focusing on hand-tools.
This is one of the ideas I prototyped earlier this fall. I wanted a project that allowed students to practice hand-cutting dovetails, make an object that was actually attractive or useful, and could be completed in a single session.
It’s made of clear white pine obtained from the local home store. Nothing fancy, but sometimes beautiful things can come from ordinary beginnings.
We’ll have to mill the parts to final thickness and length, but I think even a beginner should be able to complete the box quickly.
