Box stands 18” high or so. I used Walnut and Bird’s Eye for the corners with Bird’s Eye Veneer on the drawers. I was stuck on what handles to use, so I posted the unfinished box on Facebook and had all my friends give me suggestions on the pulls. Turns out my friends have better taste then I, so I put the pulls on that were recommended to me. There is a small recess in the bottom if you take the drawer out creating a ‘secret’ compartment. Not so secret now. ha. I plan on making more of these with variations, different wood types. It was supposed to be a jewelry box, but my son took it and now stores who knows what.
The top center panel is free floating to allow for wood movement. I didn’t think it really needed to be free floating, but it’s a must have with the changes in mid-west humidity after seeing it through the seasons.
