I love building splined miter boxes but I hate cutting the splines and grooves because I never get them *just* right so I'm building a dovetail spline jig from a video on YouTube.

Almost done.

Lol, yes, it's quite a job, but it is getting easier and quicker as I figure it out.  Here's the column from my bench shot, I put it up on Saturday.  The greatest compliment I could ask for was my wife did not realize it was new because it looks basically identical to the others!

Four down (I mean, up), a mere twenty six more to go.

Done, finished, mobile and out in the unfinished side of the shop to off-gas.

Went quick and dirty on the finish with 2 coats of Deft Lacquer....was able to do it near an open door but dam that stuff stinks.  Dead

I finished the dovetail spline jig and put it to use last night. It's a joy.

First coat of lacquer after sanding to 220. I'm digging the dovetail spline effect.

That turned out great!

Last night I threw together a simple hanger for a piece of blown glass we bought two years ago.

Tested it on the garage wall.

Tell her you are leaving it in the garage, and see what happens...

Some mitered boxes, the big one has cherry slip feathers.
The tray in the large aromatic cedar box drops down on a cushion of air.
One more tray to make, and they will all get Shellac and GF Arm-R-Seal.
