I built this medicine chest and wall storage cabinet for my bathroom. The drawer in the wall cabinet is hand dove-tailed.

They are great looking and well crafted. Like the finish and those dovetails are awesome. Great work!

One comment on your dovetailed drawer (the dovetails look great btw)...
I believe it is normal to lay out the dovetails so the tails are on the side rather than the front. That’s because the stress on the drawer front will be trying to pull the dovetail apart and having the tails on the side will resist that stress.
Of course, there won’t be a lot of stress on that particular drawer but I just wanted to bring it up in case you hadn’t considered it in your design process.
Again, beautiful work.
