For the back, I have a piece of Spanish Cedar that I'd like to use. The problem is that it isn't big enough...so I need to get another piece.
|No glue there yet. The dovetails hold well, but could be tighter. We'll look more into that later. I still have a sin to confess about cutting the joints on this box.|
Anyway, we'll look at more of that later. I'll discuss a few of my little mistakes, and how I think I can keep from making them next time.
We'll also spend some time singing the praises of Lie-Nielsen chisels. When my box of goodies arrived from Lee Valley the other day, I also had a box containing a L-N 1/2" bench chisel waiting for me as well.
