Made a couple of these boxes based on the plans in a recent Wood Magazine issue for Christmas presents. Of course, I made a few minor changes: dovetailed (instead of rabbeted) drawers, and no top cross-bar, giving them the “horned” appearance. They were well received, I think.

These were a lot of fun to make. Woods are soft maple and walnut, finish is wipe-on poly.

Thanks for looking.

Thanks for the kind words everyone, it really keeps me feeling good on my progress.

Mark, they are from issue 209, the issue currently on the stands (Dec 2011/Jan 2012).

Those are pretty cool. Not your typical box.
