    Those dovetails look very nice and crisp. I look forward to seeing the finished product.

    Small compartment with lid inside. Lid made of beech – there are a couple of reasons – first, the wooden hinges, second – little suprise on the bottom.

    I like the way you have placed the features in the wood grain and knots.
