    Inlaid dovetails - made a video tutorial, NOT photo tutorial

    Some of you will remember the boxes that I submitted to a Silent Auction at our daughter's church. They did very well at the auction, as the bids were nice and generous. The following is a photo of the two, just before I applied Waterlox as the finish:


    A few people have been interested in a tutorial on HOW to make these originally I thought I would post a photo tutorial at some point.

    As luck would have it, the photo tutorial was a good idea, at the time. But I have come up with a video tutorial, featuring yours truly! What a humbling experience this has been...

    So, if you are interested in HOW to make boxes with inlaid dovetails, please take a look at my blog (http://blog.sandal-woods.com). I have posted Part 1 (The Basics) and Part 2 (Cutting Tails & Pins). Part 3 will show the cutting of the pin sockets in the walnut, thus creating the inlay.

    I hope you will enjoy the videos. Please let me know - thanks for looking!

    I've done a few videos myself, and I know how hard it can be, as well as how time consuming it is.

    Way to go Al, that was great, now I'm waiting for part three!

    Thanks, Hubert and Stuart!

    Stuart,
    It IS a lot tougher than I realized. This is especially true when you are the Director, Producer, and Chief Bottle Washer . I continue to work on Part 3. Thanks for the encouragement!!!
