Last time I did this tray top or valet box design, I had 2 upper drawers. This time I made only one for the top drawer & did it with a segment, figured it would have more space for “stuff” than 2 separate drawers. Overall size is about 9 1/2 wide x 6 high x 4 1/2 deep. 3 are Cherry & 1 walnut. Pulls are either walnut or spalted maple. Finished with 4 coats of Arm-R-Seal.
Including a couple of in process photos on the walnut piece. After cutting the block to the outside shape, I cut off both the front & back & then start working on the drawers (there are other approaches). I also have been making complete cuts, vertical or horizontal, (in this case across the width) as I’ve found I get a tighter fit when glued up…creates a lot of parts though. Again, not to suggest that other methods will not work or perhaps be better.
Comments welcomed, thanks for your time.
