Well done mate, very good, especially (IF I've remembered correctly!) this is your 1st attempt at such a lot of internal cuts in thick timber. =D>

Thanks for showing the final cut results. Did you try a spiral blade on any of it?

I don't want to tech granny to suck eggs, but some tips I've picked up here (and Youtube) involves final sanding. Some small scraps of sanding paper wrapped around bits of dowel and slightly wedge-shaped offcuts will help a lot for final finishing (before staining/waxing/varnishing?), AND those "emery boards" used for filing finger nails are useful too. Works for me.

Happy Christmas.
