this shape has been very well liked by women who are looking for a box with good interior space but not a bulky looking exterior. I call sort of a half-football shape.
walnut gives it a luxurious looking quality. its lined with handcut felt and secured with contact glue.

Beautiful flowing lines, and very well done, I enjoy seeing the different ways craftsmen complete the bandsaw boxes. I want to do more of them myself. Thanks

+1 on the flowing lines… absolutely beautiful. Also it appears you did a great job hiding your entry cuts. Hope you do not mind if I use this design to try it…
Can you share the overall size?

Love the box!
My made problem with them is with the entry cuts.
Any hints?

wncguy- please do try this shape and glad to share. this way we all improve our skills.

marter1229- the entry cuts are all from the left side bottom. first cut starts toward left side wall and follows the outside shape up and over, then cuts the large right hand drawer, and retraces the path to exit where it started.

for the small drawer, the entry and exit point is at the bottom left, at the narrowest point of the drawer.

redryder- there are 3/4 inch holes in back, one for each drawer. I like to keep the front clean so the grain shows uninterrupted.

I hope this helps. I cant recall where I first saw this pattern or I would share- have fun !!!!!!!!

Would you provide the overall size of the box.
