Below is the work completed over the past weekend. It is progressing steadily.
The strategy for the sliding dovetails into curved sides looks to be successful. The strategy was necessitated by the design, which required the housings to be made from inside the front legs, rather than from outside, as is usual.
There is also a novel method for creating the sliding dovetails using an easy-to-make dovetail plane (everyone will make one!).
