Looks very nice, are they handcut dovetails (pins look nice and thin)? What finish did you use?

Beautiful piece and gorgeous wood. Those dovetails look awesome too!
What joinery methods did you use on everything else? (Dowels / mortise & tenon / biscuits, etc.)

Thanks for posting. The inside back panel of your project is just as nice as the rest of it. The dovetails are beautiful.
