Finally got these off the list of things to try. I have been wanting to make these for a long time and finally decided to give it a whirl. Both are spalted maple and finished with wipe on poly.

I love the choice of wood you used. I have made this design a few times and they are always liked and sold good.

Very nice job. These are on my project list, hopefully get to them before Christmas. Did you use band saw or scroll saw?

Very nice. I really like the way the drawers are flush with the front of the box and the kerf lines around the drawers are tight. It appears you did not cut the drawers and the fronts at the same time. Would you mind elaborating on how this was cut or offer some information on where I/we could find a pattern.

Awesome job!
