I would agree on the rails and stiles , I just assumed that the panels were only as wide as the wood you had to work with , but the drawers look fine from here : )
Wonderful spalted accent wood…not expecting to see that much inside of the box . Nice surprise : )

The wide stiles could be a bit narrower, they worked better on your spouses box as the mahogany was more dramatic. I like the hardware you use (nails!), the interior colour of the drawers and the contrasting use of some very pretty woods. Are those doors as thin as the picture would suggest? A well done gift.
