This is my second bandsaw box from mahogany with a hint of maple. It has banana drawers but I don’t have a flock system yet so the insides are bare. I will flock them in black. I showed some shots of the build process steps. The drawer pulls are doweled on and the front has a maple ring around the frame but not through the drawers. The last pictures show how I cut out the maple and relieved the mahogany to make it not show through to the inside. I glued those two pieces together and then ran them through the planer.
I made this one right by cutting off the front and back of each drawer rather than the bottom. I did glue in skid plates so the drawers are a bit more centered in the openings. I also glued 1/2” buttons in the back of the drawers to flush the fronts up.
Finish is Deft clear lacquer- 8 coats.
This is an 11th birthday present for grandaughter #3 who designed it this way with 2 drawers on the bottom and one bigger one on top. This will be her jewelry box since I did not yet make one for her.
