The weekly plan

Woodworking Masterclasses dovetail caddy

Paul Sellers is a master woodworker. What he can do with hand tools is amazing, and he teaches others how to master the craft.

The dovetailed caddy

So, when I saw this plan for a hand-dovetailed caddy project that could be put to use as a sandpaper holder, I had to stop myself and do a double take. I mean, why would something this pretty be used as such a mundane shop project?

Well, it’s the answer to the old question, “How do you get to Carnegie Hall?” Practice, my friend.  A small piece such as this provides a tremendous amount of practice for the hand-tool novice. Knock this out, and the next thing you know, you’ll be building beautiful cases for your home.

The best part of this project is that it is accompanied by a five-part YouTube tutorial to walk you through the process.

One thought on “The weekly plan”

  1. I started with that caddy and wound up subscribing to Paul’s pay site for about a year. He’s a great teacher. A bit biased towards the hand tools, but that’s all cool with me. My interests have shifted, but I still love to watch a video or two from him now and then.
