Great joints!! I dream of the day when mine will be that clean! Top notch!! Pun intended.

Do any off you ever wonder who cut the first dovetail joint? What tools he used and what wood?

Great job, I have not cut dovetails by hand since I was in my 20’s, after my first router. Maybe I should revisit that, your joints are nice and tight, like old world craftsmanship.
