Had some left over 5/4 Cherry and my desk computer needed a riser. Wanted it plane and simple. I debated butt joints, pocket holes, but ended up with dovetails. Didn’t do any layout except by eye. There was some checking on the end of the board but not much chipped off. 90 minutes from once I picked out the board to glued up. Only electric used was for the lights and the radio.
I never cut 5/4 dovetails before ever error is magnified due to the size of the cut.

Looks good but what did you do with the cherry?
That’s oak.

Never even noticed. Smelled and cut line cherry but yeah looks more like oak. Except what’s not in the picture is some sap wood on the bottom. Well it works guess all that matters.
