    Very nice work. Love the Federal style. For me this was inspirational to try a Federal piece.
    Regards,

    Thanks for the feedback, I appreciate your kind words! I think might be too many pics, but that’s what I like and thought I would just go for it and include them.

    I’m interested in how others do half blind DT’s and appreciate and suggestions .

    Cheers, Mike

    Not too many pictures, at all. Your build threads are fantastic, as are the pieces!

    I saw to the sharp pencil line (might have to whittle down the sides of a pencil, but I don't get along as well with a scribed line), and clean it out with a little router-StewMac plunge base w/Milwaukee 12v cordless rotary tool (current favorite in that base). Derek makes a special base of the small Makita router for this job. I thought about copying Derek's design, but I like the little one, since I can keep both my hands on the piece beside where I'm cleaning it out. I forget what size bit I use, but it's a little one. Finished with a dovetail chisel in the corners-reground blue handled Marples.

    Wow Mike, that is super work!

    You have no idea what a life saver you are ... here I am, trampling the streets of Europe, and have not yet seen a furniture display to set my pulse racing (although I hit the Bauhaus museum in a few days). Back in the quiet of the hotel, missing my shop terribly, I find your build ... and what a build! It has everything .. handworked joinery, inlay, design ... thanks.

    Regards from Berlin

    Mike, is there something specific you want to compare with your method?

    This is an old post of mine involving half blind dovetails:

    https://sawmillcreek.org/showthread.php?258465

    Two points on mine are sawing a kerf in the middle of the waste and using a tool to extend the kerf to the base of the socket of all three kerfs.

    Jerry, thanks for your comments. No, I absolutely didn't make the banding myself- that is waaay above my head. I got the banding from my local Rockler store- I believe it pretty standard for them to stock.

    Derek, I'm glad I could provide a woodworking fix for a weary traveler! I have learned so much and thoroughly enjoyed your posts over the years – glad I could reciprocate in a small way. I would love to hear your impressions of the the Bauhaaus Museum. Not exactly my aesthetic choice of style but I certainly appreciate their stylistic influence on furniture and their high standards of execution. If you get a chance, I'd love to hear your thoughts and get some pictures. Best wishes for safe travel.

    All the best, Mike
