    Cool stuff, Jr. Very nice dovetails, but I'd expect that from you. What kind of wood is it, and what's the finish?

    Its salvage southern pine from packing crates, the finish is Danish oil. And the dovetails mortices were cut with my treadle jig saw.

    It goes with this sewing box.

    That's officially the fanciest pin cushion I've seen.

    I have a small box I need to finish the top for.

    EDIT: nice drive-by on the sewing box, that wasn't visible previously. Nice!
