Drawers are remade

I had to make three drawers that were missing. All the surfaces have been hand planed. Later all new wood will be colored to match the desk.

I had one original drawer to copy. I used a 14 degree dovetail that has as 3/16″ neck on the pins . The drawer sides are walnut with popular back and bottoms. What is unusual is the top edge of the drawers sides and backs are rounded  over. I did this with a molding plane. Drawer bottoms were fielded with a hand plane to fit the groove in the sides and fronts.
