Will the pins remain "proud" in the finished piece?

That would be an interesting tactile detail.

Jim, I forgot to answer this.

The plan is to round the dovetails, so the proudness will go.

Rounding the dovetails means adding a coved filet inside the curve to complement the arc, and then also rounding the drawer sides where they fit. This piece is intended to flow ... :)

Regards from Perth
