I enjoy making these and this pattern was designed by wife. They always sell so I decided to make a couple more for an upcoming show in May. (Just photographed the one) Nothing more than inexpensive pine laminated into a blank. The “tree/limbs” part is stained to bring out the contrast. The handles or pulls I made form another bandsaw box leftover drawer cavity from my overflowing scrap box. I used a plug cutter on the drill press then separated them on the band saw. The drawers are flocked with wine colored flock and the pull tips are purpleheart, matched pretty nicely. ALWAYS lots of sanding on these !

It is 5 1/2”H x 8”L x 4 1/2”D. Sanded to 320 and finished with 4 coats Minwax wipe-on poly with a light 400 grit sanding in between coats.

Thanks for looking.
