I did this project for my neighbors father for a Christmas gift. I stalked my other neighbors garbage for weeks…until I found old dressers that had been thrown out. I take the drawers and tear them apart and resaw them. I biscuit and glue them up to the size I need and then joint them. The only real expense is the hardware, because all the wood is reclaimed from the neighbors. The finish is a one coat poly stain that went on great (I did two coats). It has a felt bottom and a divider for cups and tea stuff. The joints are 1/2 inch box joints done with a Porter Cable 4012 jig. There is also an initial on top. I would like to try building a smaller version of this box on a table saw with a sliding box joint jig. Thanks for looking.
