The first one shown here is the first one I tried, just to make sure I knew what I was doing. It’s just a chunk from a pine 4×4. I planned on giving it away as a white elephant gift for Christmas (my family is odd, I’ll admit) but my wife caught sight of it and it hasn’t left her desk ever since…. 4×4 pine…. who would’ve thought. The 2nd pic is the box in the 3rd pic before staining, sealing and gluing on the drawer pulls. That box is walnut with maple pulls. My wife doesn’t care so much for that one, so THAT one will now be the “white elephant’ gift. I can say this is the ONLY time in recent memory where my wife has displayed anything short of “champagne taste”. I’m still tryin’ to figure that one out. Maybe having the larger drawer on top offends her sense of symmetry…?
