Thanks you all for the warm reception I got on my first project.
This is a follow up piece that utilized the same construction technique with a variation on the size and materials.
I think these two pieces compliment each other quite nicely.
Hand tools only, no electrons were harmed.

This is my fifth set of dovetails, I impressed myself with how crisp they came out.
I use a shop made magnetic saw guide and an alignment board (both based on the David Barron design).

Yes, I had to fit a 3/8” thick panel in a 1/4” groove so I did a raised panel detail.

Shuja, do a search on YouTube for David Barron. In his dovetailing videos you will see the saw guide and alignment board.
