My second band saw box project, a present for one of our neighbors. The center is walnut, then I added some plywood for decoration and some doug fir for the outside sections. After all the cutting and sanding, I added a small knob which was turned on my lathe. The project was finished with some Danish oil to bring out the grain and color. This one turned out a lot better than my first one.

Really a great looking the design. When I have a drawer seems a bit short front to back, I will glue a small piece to the back of the box inside to make the drawer set flush to the front….no one would even know it’s there…thick felt will also work…just my 2 cents

I wouldn’t have thought you could make doug fir and plywood look that good…........................

Great design! I would echo Hawaiilad’s suggestion to glue a small block of wood right at the back of where the draw slides in to (not on the drawer itself) to bring the front of the drawer flush with the rest of the box.
