Here is a tutorial on hand cut double dovetails by Woodhacker on Lumberjocks site.

I've yet to try these, but I'm determined that my next box will be with DD, just need to decide on and obtain some contrasting wood.

The proper name, actually, is OUTLINED dovetail but some folks do call them double dovetails

For more outlined joints, see: http://www.hobbithouseinc.com/person...pics/_g_NO.htm

You can never have too much pepperoni on your pizza or own too many clamps.
