Default It ainít perfect, but...

...I made it anyway. A kitchen table hutch for a coworker whose wife sketched out the details. Went through the final details with the husband and the rest is history. Muffed the long ‘wall’ by forgetting the layout of the middle portion, etc. Was glad to see I could make dados on both sides of a 1/4” piece of Maple without compromising the material. Used clear Titebond glue which was a big help. A freebie job that I completed in less than a week with about 18 hours into it.

Another good learning experience on how-to and how-not-to make a box. The practice will be useful for a copycat project - a tea box.

Nice job. That's a very handy design.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

The Ďcustomerí was especially taken by them but to me they were a design nuisance. Hereís why - anything off a 90-degree cut widens that mitered surfaceís width, so each of those 45-degree radius cuts added half again as much material to mate up as a simple square corner would have. Lining up the interior surfaces left a good 1/16Ē of material sticking past the joint - I just crudely shaved it off with a chisel and rounded them off with 80 grit until I could go to a lower grade of sandpaper. With all the other warts to try and conceal, this was the worst one. Thankfully, they will love this freebie and never complain but Iím wondering how to do it correctly - if there is a way. The upcoming Tea Box Wonít have any radius corners!
