I’ve seen this project: http://lumberjocks.com/projects/51467 and decided to built it on my own.
This is my result: the body is made of spruce wood, and the knobs are made of walnut.
It’s about 6 ” high and about 5” wide, the depth is about 5”.
It was a really nice project, but now i know: make the drawers first, and then the front, so you can avoid bigger cuts in it

Very cute… I’ll try one for a grandniece. I didn’t see any evidence of entry cut lines for the drawers, you hid them very well. How were you able to make the sharp corner cuts in the top of the lower drawer?

Thats easy, i cut off the back and the front, afterwards i cut the drawers out of the middle, glued it up, take the front plate with the same layout as the drawers, drilled 2 1,5mm holes in it, and cut it out with the scrollsaw. Then i glued the front on the middle, and found out, that the drawers are a little bit smaller then it should be, so now there is for me a big gap at the front, which i really dislike. The only cuts you’ll see, are the front and back cut, if you turn the owl upside down, you’ll see the entry cuts for the drawers.

Thanks, I don’t have scrollsaw, so will think about modifying the bottom drawer to allow radius on BS.
