Dirty case top- dovetail shelves

David Weaver
This is the case top shell that I made the dovetail plane for.

There are gaps aplenty, bit it's solid, and I can make visual adjustments to the front after I plane the excess shelf flush.

This is not a vintage style build. The doors will be flat panel and mouldings will cover the half blinds, which I cleaned up with the sawdust and glue trick.

These are the fastest halfblinds I've ever cut, and I appreciated the looseness of everything for more than one reason.

This is not high quality cherry and will be stained, bosses orders.
