Watched you on my big screen smarter than me TV last night. Saw your box build with Marc the “Wood Whisperer.”Are these corners your signature? Or just one of your well thought out pieces? This box stands out with the choice of movement in the drawer fronts.

Definitely a winner!

Gary, do you have a picture of the back of the case? I would be interested in seeing what you did on the back.
