Mahogany NBSS Tool Box
The NBSS tool box is the first major project in the Cabinet and Furniture Making program. Art made the case using a housed tapered dovetail. This let him add a new joint to his repertoire and try a coved edge on the molding. On the drop-down door (not shown), he used an escutcheon inlay from a piece of abalone stock that belonged to his grandfather.

FWW Live Gallery
When the pandemic forced the cancellation of Fine Woodworking Live 2020, these promising furniture makers from woodworking schools around the country were set to be featured in the event’s gallery. It’s a shame you won’t get to see these pieces in person, but here they are in print. We were impressed, and hope you’ll be, too.
