This was made out of a whole piece of scrap hardwood for my Girlfriend. the top and bottom where cut off from a blank block of wood and then using the plans shown a small hole was drilled in the corner of each drawer. then I used a scroll saw (set at an angle of about 2degrees) very slowly to cut out each drawer. then a small section of the bottom of the drawer was cut and glued back in the bottom and because of the angle it fits snuggly.

Delightfully different from most of the boxes on this site… I like…
While I understand how it was made maybe a blog for the others…?

Quite nice.

Can you describe how you made the openings in the drawers?
