The mahogany box I built about 3 years after the walnut box. With this one I used a tambour front cover,cut-outs instead of drawer pulls,and I added a full height section to the back. All the raised panels are book-matched and each one is mirrored on the opposite side,and the drawer fronts have a design(diamond) using the grain of the wood.This design repeats on the lower section. The drawers are red oak sided but still ride on maple runners. The first three years of its life my wife would not let it out of the house-said it was to nice to be in the shop.Finally,was able to get it into the shop to stor my tools. All the drawers are lined with felt.
The first two pics are a walnut tool box I built about 35 years ago.It has been in almost continual use.The drawers are pine with walnut faces.They ride on maple runners with a little candle wax to make them smoooth.
Hope you enjoy.Comments good and bad always welcome.
