Default The Last Dovetail

The last dovetail has been cut for the military chests. The drawer carcases are completed, and installed. I have the drawer bottoms to finish (they are 2/3 done), and then the handles to fit. That is for later.

In the meantime I thought I would prepare a "lessons learned" from the 12 drawers. There was too much to post here, so the article is on my website:

I love how the grain matches on the drawers, Derek. That really makes it.
Very nice indeed.
