This was my fall project that I made for my wife. It features beveled sides which gave me a little extra challenge on the dovetails. I made a couple of videos on this project, Follow the link if you are interested. I am currently playing with new video editing software so please forgive the sloppy ness of the videos.

Very nice work on this, the compound angle dovetails look great – nice and tight, and the contrasting wood colors are a nice touch to emphasize them.

I agree.
Very well done and the beveled dovetails look challenging. Great job!
Dovetails turned out great. What software are you using now?

Thanks Jon, I’m using adobe premier. It’s really great software, but there is a bit of a learning curve.
