1. Started with 4 3/4” pieces of alder glued together
2. I drew the outline of my box onto the block of wood
3. I cut 1/4” off the back of the block and set it aside.
4. I drew the shape of the drawer onto the box and cut it out.
5. Once the drawer was out, I glued the back onto the body and clamped it. Sanded prior to glueing.
7. Drawer- cut 1/4” off the back and front and labeled. Then i cut out the inside, leaving 1/4” walls

10. I sanded the body of the drawer.
11. I applied antique cherry stain to my box.
