They look very nice! Do you consider yourself proficient now? If so, how long did it take?

I like the houndstooth. It’s hard to not get mixed up when you’re cutting that one. Nice job. Cosman would be proud.

Handcutting dovetails is very rewarding. I recently took a class on dovetailing as I had not really done a lot of it in the past. Tight fits do take quite a bit of practice and patients. Congradulations your work looks great.
