Hi again James, Lovely table. I have to ask though about your decision to have the dovetails on the drawer front ( or is it fronts?). Traditionally tails would go on the sides to resist the forces of pulling on the front during opening. Was this strictly an appearance based detail to highlight the joinery as a design feature? Thanks for your wonderful site and videos by the way. It’s been fun watching your woodworking skills and children grow. It’s so nice to see the kids in the shop. Have fun

Great looking table. I am also interested in why you chose dovetails on the front of the drawer.
