Here is an aromatic cedar essential oil box that I made. It is in the green and green style. I used walnut for the pluges and the drawer pull. It also has a raised panel top and removable tray and drawer. The drawer sides are made of cypress. It was made entirely with hand tools, and holds about 75 bottles. A fun little project for a friend.
