Just can’t get enough walnut.
I like the joint work, with the dowels in it. Very nice. And I like the design, not overly elaborate. Nice job.

did you work off of plans or a sketchup design or just free draw it?

Ketch8; No plans No drawings, I was in box mode, I just had a vision in my mind and started making saw dust and that is what turned out. To answer you prior questions the dimensions are
The over all is 12” wide x 8” deep x 4” tall / The drawer faces are 5.1/2” wide x 1.7/8 tall and the drawers are 4.3/4 wide x 7.3/4 deep x 1.1/4 tall. The hardware is just 2 simple brass pulls and some 3/16 brass rod used as dowels and left exposed.
I hope this helps, I could do a sketch for you if you need one but this should get you their. Let me know and thanks for the questions . . . . . I enjoy the interaction.
OH YA the box took about 1 hr to make plus glue time and 1 hr to finish (oil) plus materials 6 board feet of lumber. I would most likely charge someone
2 shop hrs 50.00 per $ 100.00 (labor / shop time)Shop Supplies $ 25.00 (Glue sandpaper, finishing materials, blade surcharge)Lumber $ 50.00 (just a dirty guess not sure what a board ft is to day)Hardware $ 10.00 (again just a guess / don’t remember what the pulls cost
But the 3/16 brass rod is fairly cheep
That would make it a $185.00 solid walnut valet, seams pretty reasonable to me you might be able to get $225.00 in the rite market.

Ketch8; I forgot . . . . The material was milled to ½” thick while ALL the drawer materials are ¼” thick
