That's really nice work. I can only imagine how difficult it is to align a through tenon stretcher, keep everything square, and keep all those dovetails fitting perfectly at the baselines. If I had access to that kind of walnut, I'd change my tune about working with walnut.
Awesome build! I want a kayak now so I can build some paddles
Because the thickness needs to be far more exact and uniform than a bandsaw is capable of
Why did you plane to thickness after resawing?
Looks like you've got the mitered dovetails down. This box came out great. I love the color of that walnut with the contrasting lid/base.
Yeah I'm probably going to add a friction fit divider in the center to make 2 rows
Nice build! The base is a nice change of pace from what I'm used to seeing. Are you going to add any dividers inside for organization or just leave it a blank slate?

Thanks Donny! I don't really use the left and right bevel knives a lot, but when I need them I am very glad I have them
Very cool! I didn't know about left and right bevel marking knives. Thanks for the really great build!
Thanks Guy! I'm moving on to the trays which are cherry. Dovetailing them will be a lot easier
Very well written Joe. And I applaud you for getting the joints this tight in pine.
I do gang cut dovetails sometimes, but I tend to leave a small crown in the center when sawing on some of the cuts. I need a bit more practice with it
Excellent job so far Joe.I noticed that you marked the two tail boards together at the same time. What are your thoughts on cutting both tail boards at the same time?

Thanks @DonnyCarter !
Very nice work! Clear and precise explanations are great! Thanks!
Nice work Joe! I like how you mention cleaning up and tool maintenance after a session like this.
Thanks! I like a neat shop and freshly maintained tools. Doing it a little at a time makes it simple.
Do you mill your own lumber? I can never find air dried Ash. Actually I'm having a hard time finding any ash lately
I think everyone that produces videos or how-to blogs (me included) glances over the milling steps. This is really helpful - especially the commentary on stock selection/grain orientation. Really great video
@Sean guild is a great idea. These long form videos would be too much to consume in a single video, and I tend to lose track of multi-part projects on youtube. Having everything in one place is great
You make this look less frustrating than it actually is. Raised panels are hard. I "like" to cut them vertically in a vise instead of laying flat. I skew the plane with the front pointed up and just go right across. I put like in quotes because it's still difficult and really error prone.
Really nice, Thanks for linking where you got the clock movement and hinges.
I brushed it. 2 coats did the trick. Plywood doesn't absorb a lot of finish
Did you pad or brush the shellac?
Awesome. I love the mortise gauge.
Thanks Sean. This site is awesome btw
