Merry X Mas to my biggest fan. My wife. The box is made from a piece of butternut I have had in my locker for over two years. I first saw this box on LJ and knew at first glance ( by the butterflies in my stomach ), that I would be giving a crack at this project (no pun intended). I lined the inside of the drawer cavities with felt so as to give a smooth and piston like feel to the drawers. The felt idea came from a LJ posting . After a bit of googling on the internet machine I came across a full set of instructions posted by Brian of Dawson Creek. Thank you so much Brian.

Here is a link to his posting and instructions in Canadian woodworking magazine. I hope this might inspire and help someone who so wishes to make one of these.
