As I continue on the process of dovetailing the case of this blanket chest. I did the second set of through dovetails on the opposite front corner. They came out real good as well, I was quite relieved since these will show on the front of the chest. I need to now do the back corners, and I am hoping my luck will continue. If it does hold maybe I should try the blackjack table at the casino. I have said I am by no means an expert on hand cut dovetails however, I did have quite a bit of practice on my last project. On the federal table front I also have the first piece of shop made veneer (hopefully) glued to the table apron. It was a tough glue up but I think I should have a good adhesion to the brick laid sycamore. I will know when I remove the clamps tonight. I also am trying to match the walnut boards for the best grain and color match for the sides of the dresser. In looking at other peoples work that is something that always catches my eye. It really shows up when the boards don't match up grain and color wise. I hope I can get a good match with the boards I have.
Well sometimes it works out
