I love this. I like the grading of the drawer sizes. Plus the cheeky little drawer pulls

Great design. I love the look of these boxes within a box. Nice wood grain.

Is the inside rounded or do they have flat edges on the individual boards?

I guess it looks round and flat where it matched the cabinet sides.

Sorry I haven’t answered questions sooner…..been in the shop. The drawer fronts are coopered, which means individual staves, and shaped both inside and out. It is 14 inches tall. This piece is currently on display at Northwest Fine Woodworking Gallery in Seattle. Thanks for all your nice comments!!
