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

Can you talk about the joinery, rentman? It is a beautiful piece.

yes they are hand cut donetails,I sold my leigh jig so I would not be lazy and use it.I love doing hand work it just a nice time in the shop to cut all the tools off and open up the hand tool cabinet.the finnish is as follows
one coat lenseed oil,4 coats of 1/3 poly 1/3 lenseed 1/3 tung oil mixed.then 1coat of 2/3 poly 1/3 thinner then rub it out with 4o steel whol and a coat of wax.it takes about 4 days to do(only because of drying time)
thanks all of you

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.

Hi Phil;
—-truly this is a stunning piece of ‘wood art’!

And you are to be complimented for your handwork here with the dovetail joinery….and then a great choice of finish. What a wonderful piece of furniture to be passed on….and I love the attention to detail, inside and out….

Thanks for sharing this one with us.
GODSPEED,
Frank
