In this box, the drawer mechanism detailed in the blog
has an up grade, cause one of the sides of the box is the sliding dovetail, (in fact, the sliding dovetail push a device which translate horizontal movement in upside down movement)
If you don´t know where to push is very difficult to open the box

thanks for looking

Nice looking design. I like the lid inlays. What woods did you use?
