I am working on the same box right now. You did a very good job of hiding the cut lines, and I like the use of rough wood and not rounding the edges of the box or drawers….very nice work. Because it is so long, did you use a 14” saw and if so, did you run into any problems with having enough space to cut everything out?

ShaneA, yep, rough cut beetle kill spruce, left over cut off from the yurt project. Only readily available wood up here.

Hawaiilad, did use a 14” band saw and had no issues with room. You should not have to “Hide” any cut lines on this project. If done properly there will be no cuts on the face or back. Pretty easy one day project, just alot of sanding.

B13, drawer faces and backs were cut with a scroll saw, the rest was done with a band saw.

Takes a specially twisted, damaged mind to come up with something like this.
No wonder we get along!
Really fine job.
