I finished this board a while back but we finally got together with some friends so I could pass it along. Black walnut and hard maple in a classic alternating stripe design. Goes great with everything, especially chocolate chip cookies 🍪😃

Here’s the @homedepot gem of a bookmatched Birdseye maple panel for the oak whiskey shelf. This is fresh off the planer, no filter. just imagine what it’ll look like with some arm-r-seal on it!

#Shopsounds 🔊
Trimming the shelf tenons to fit in the stopped dado. Next up: rabbeting the back panel and sides of the box.

Got in a few minutes after work today to route out the stopped dado for the shelf and the rabbets on the shelves.
After dinner, I’m going to try to pare down the dovetails a bit and trim the stopped edge of the shelf to fit.

I didn’t make it into the shop yesterday, but I worked quickly today and got all the pins trimmed up. Here’s the first full dry fit. I think I’ll pare the super tight joints just a bit, some of them are scary tight. It would be a shame to crack something since I’ll probably be right up against the deadline on this.

So after the trimming is done, that will be the end of the hand tool portion. I’ll be rabbeting the back and sides, and then routing a dado to accept a small shelf before installing the back. I hope that doesn’t disqualify me from the hand cut dovetail challenge. I don’t have the tools or the time (or the skill) to do the other stuff by hand 🤷‍♂️

Finally getting back to the dovetail challenge…

Finally getting back to the dovetail challenge box. Tonight I finished paring the tails and trimming the shoulders. Then I started in on the pins. Marked, peeled, sawed and coped away the waste. Tomorrow I’ll get into the chisel work. This is going to be a close one.
Enjoy some terrible progress videos 😐

I started the real-deal dovetail project in cherry last night. What a world of difference from the red oak! Here I’m cleaning up a shoulder, sneaking up on my scores line. I’m hoping the cherry is much faster to come together since it’s a lot softer. Meaning I spend more time woodworking than sharpening chisels.

Today I also snuck in a little time to do the layout and final dimensioning work on the dovetail challenge box. The backing and shelf will take a little more to figure out, but the sides, top and bottom are final dimensioned.
After getting the parts to size, I went ahead with the blue tape again, which I found really helpful in the red oak practice. Much easier to see where the lines are, what is waste and what is not.
Then after peeling the waste areas, I couldn’t help myself, had to get in a few tail cuts tonight. The cherry is just so smooth! Such a different feel than red oak, or even pine.

Tomorrow, I’ll finish the tail cuts, figure out a way to cut the live edge shoulders and before I do any chisel work, I’ll do a full sharpening on my three smaller chisels, which were the ones I used most on the red oak. They all got pretty beat up but I’ll get them flattened edged and honed back up to shaving sharp.

Red oak practice dovetail box is complete! I finished off trimming the last two sets of pins this morning. Glad to be done with the red oak. It’s been a great teacher. I’ve learned the importance of tight coping so there’s less chisel work and the absolute necessity of sharp tools despite the delay in progress. Plus a ton of other stuff I won’t go into but things only a wide grained, rock hard, yet brittle wood can show you.
I think all of these joints turned out pretty ok, so I’m going to come back to this after the dovetail challenge to sand and finish it. I’m also going to use power tools for the last of it, but I’m pretty proud of the outcome of the hand tool practice.
Bye red oak, bring in the cherry and spalted maple!
