Thanks MsDebbieP. Lanwater, the dovetails are handmade. The balance in proportion is harder for me than the construction of them. I am an artsy kind of guy so e.g. the tails are 3/4 in the drawer leaving 1/4 proportion of the cherry showing. I got a little thinner on the pins this time but … I couldn’t go to nothing like I’ve seen some do (fear). The white square is a reflection. The secondary wood is sassafras and I’m on the fence about the health issues around it. I am making a toolbox now with it and I’ll post pics when I’m a little further.
