I decided to give this a try, I used some cheap pine so if I mess it up no loss. Lol but they are not so hard to do, so I wanted to post so people can try it and not be scared,
I just glued up a 3×3x7 block of pine, drew on a random pattern cut out outside shape, cut thin piece off back, cut out inside shapes, cut thin back off, glued main box to hide cut entry, cut out center of drawer shapes, glued backs back on them and the main box. Owlish it up and wa la! I am going to do a better one today:)

They came out really good and unique. Like the quirky design, very interesting shapes. Well done and looking forward to more boxes.
