November, 2011—This two drawer box is made from four woods, with maple on the front for a nice bright look. Each drawer has a secret drawer accessible from the back of the main drawers.

I named this box Infinity after the pattern around the drawers looks like a figure-8. This box has several coats of a semi-gloss finish.

I like the design. It looks like cat eyes. The secret drawers are a nice touch too.

Very nice. Didn’t see the infinity at first glance. My first thought was a bra. I really hope I’m not turning into that guy. :)

Great concept Art. I like that you are continuing to expand your boundaries and explore new ideas with your boxes. Keep it up!

I like the novel design, and the hidden drawers are a neat surprise. Well done!

I can’t remember if you’ve done a box with a hidden drawer (or drawers) before? I like that you’ve done it here, adding another level of complexity of design and construction to your project. When I made my bandsaw box with a hidden compartment for family last year, they didn’t even notice the hidden drawer until I told them about it over the phone. It was quite literally a surprise once they discovered it.

I am trying to imagine how you cut out the secret compartments but my mind is not able to picture it. Wish you could post so pics of the project part way through to see the “how to” part.

@cassady: I blogged about building my first bandsaw box, which had a hidden compartment. The blog series starts here, and you can read specifically about cutting out the secret compartment here and the second step of removing the front and back of the secret compartment here.
