Looks great.

How did you prep the ends with the brass dowels exposed? Just sand up to 220ish? Did you polish the brass after sanding flush?

Those brass dowels are a nice touch on that wood. Nicely done.

1/4 brass dowel, dowels were cut to length of 1 inch and then after lap joints glued, drilled 1/4 inch holes into joints and used gorilla glue and hammered dowels into place. Dowel ends were then sanded up to 400 grit on ends.
