    Dedicated Dovetailing Bench

    I just recently finished an heirloom, dedicated dovetailing bench (I like to cut dovetails by hand).
    The bench is entirely hand made; the only power tool being brought to bear on it being the tablesaw.
    Beadings were cut with an antique beading plane (circa 1860) and the dovetails in the tool drawers were all hand-cut. Many hours of hand planing went into wood preparation and smoothing.
    The wood used was Goncalo Alves and Marblewood.
    The Moxon vice hardware was sourced from Independent Woodworking in the UK (Independent Woodworking).Dedicated Dovetailing Bench-img_3660.jpgDedicated Dovetailing Bench-img_3674.jpgDedicated Dovetailing Bench-img_3675.jpg

    The bench also incorporates a secret compartment that contains a small mahogany box made by my maternal grandfather in the 1920s. He was a Master Carpenter in Sussex, England.

    More pictures can be seen on independent woodworking's blog or on my blog www.waneyedgeworkshop.wordpress.com
