Matt’s Weekly Shop Update – Aug 10, 2018

They had some amazing color and spalting and the bigger one also included some embedded metals which made things fun. Back in the shop, I added the horizontal dividers to the sideboard. The top divider is dovetailed into the legs and the lower one connects to the legs with a double mortise and tenon.
