Joinery included a mix of mortise/tenons, biscuits, and pocket screws.

It’s my first time making half-blind dovetails (after several practice runs). And the only chisels I used were two buck brothers (3/8” and 3/4”) and a Marples 1/8”. Goes to show that you can get good looking dovetails with Home Depot crap chisels.

The shadows don’t do your work justice. Table looks great.

Great job on that table. It is a very nice looking piece. You should be proud!! And you are now into making half blind dovetails!!

Very impressive dovetails with the contrasting wood and the design you chose.
