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.

I especially like what you did, in both adding them, and in the wood in those side panels.

An idea,,,how about using several of those magnet held, but spring release when pushed glass door latches, located/ for the center of the back side of your drawers,,,,no pulls at all.

I like your idea of no handles. I may have to try that on the next project.

Very nice design and great work on it . But depending on how old your son is you might want to check out that ‘secret’ compartment just to see what’s in it. :)
