Re: Seasonal allowances

Thanks, warren - what's your assessment for the dovetail orientation on the top? I have an extreme aversion to end grain, but it's not based on advice from someone else or reading of anything - it's just being eccentric.

Do you think they're oriented that way so that they hold the sides fixed? rather than the top?

My two carcases are HB top as shown (oriented opposite, though), the shelves are holding the case sides together and the whole thing may fail at some point, but hopefully i'll be dead by then.

I like the style of the case that you've shown - is that your own make?
