I didn’t make it into the shop yesterday, but I worked quickly today and got all the pins trimmed up. Here’s the first full dry fit. I think I’ll pare the super tight joints just a bit, some of them are scary tight. It would be a shame to crack something since I’ll probably be right up against the deadline on this.

So after the trimming is done, that will be the end of the hand tool portion. I’ll be rabbeting the back and sides, and then routing a dado to accept a small shelf before installing the back. I hope that doesn’t disqualify me from the hand cut dovetail challenge. I don’t have the tools or the time (or the skill) to do the other stuff by hand 🤷‍♂️
