The first two pics are the caddy I made a while ago when I was learning to do hand cut dovetails. They weren’t that good and I had to put shims in the pins/tails to close up the gaps.
The next 3 pics are a caddy I made almost one year later. I didn’t have to use shims this time and the tails and pins went together off the saw. Both projects where made from scraps and this is what I do with 99% of them.

Nice job(s). If you hadn’t said anything, I’d have thought the first picture was a fancy, inlay style of dovetail that you had perfected. ;-)

I should have added that I made both caddies using hand tools only. I got better doing dovetails in the time since the first caddy.
