By the looks of your beautiful work on these chests, I guess you’re back to feeling nearly 100% and that is great news. The dovetail detail makes this project a homerun. Well done!

Thanks for asking. These were actually 98% done a few months ago, I’ve been putting on the finish and hardware slowly. My arm is better but my hand is still not functional. It will be this was for another 1 to 6 months until the radial nerve grows back.
I can still turn a bowl but that’s about it for now.
