I think these are some nice boxes, but this really is more about the journey than the destination. I invented a new tool to make these, or similar drawers super quickly, this video contains all the details:

Brilliant thinking and design Andrew. I hope you do very well with this.
However, to play devil’s advocate a little I would have trouble in cost/benefit analysis for most shops.
-This can’t be a cheap tool
-The one piece drawer is impressive but wasteful of material with its thick bottom
-Limited versatility, how many plywood shop drawers will I make
-Strength gain over a similar joint off the tablesaw without the bump likely excess.(strong enough is all we need)
-Corners are pretty but splines mitres are too.
-More …..

I spent my working life in the building business. Boats, a few companies, etc and I don’t mean to rain on your parade but cost analysis here just doesn’t work for me. That doesn’t mean I don’t think the design is brilliant and I sincerely hope you prove me wrong.

Good Luck with your venture!

Color me impressed! This is pretty dang cool!

One curious observation… Do the plywood edges break when you “fold” the sides? Did you wet them to help with the bending to avoid breaking?

Great idea.. Have you done a Provisional Patent Pending on this yet? I assume you have
but I thought I would ask.
Without it you are placing this idea in the public domain and anyone is free to copy and or file
a patent on it without you.. just so you know.
We are in the middle of a Provisional on a new product of ours.
You must do that to protect yourself and you can not disclose the idea until it is filed.

Anyhow you have probably done this.. great idea.. you should be stating “Patent Pending”
All the Best With It.

It looks like you have a great idea there. I think that you are going about it in the right way: find an established company that would be interested in developing and marketing it. They would either buy your interest out or include you with enough interest in it. Either way could be worked out for compensation for you. Congratulations on a great idea and I hope that you do well with it.
