I couldn’t bring myself to kreg the drawers so I went ahead with hand cutting the dovetails. It was good practice and went quick with such a short drawer, only 6 tails all told.

A little planing on the sides to get the width of the drawer just right with a snug fit and a coat of paint on the carcase.

Finally I decided to give a hand carved drawer pull a go. Not sure what color to go with the desk, the white is a little stark but makes a good base coat for now.
