Scroll sawing the pieces makes a stronger box for there are no cuts from drawer opening to drawer opening. But it does take a few minutes longer to complete one like this.

Fantastic. It has a little “steam-punk” look about it, which I think is very kool.

Steve I cut all the drawer openings and the outside shape and all the inside holes with my 788 before I ever glued the 10 pieces I used for the box. Also all the individual inside pieces have to be glued less the front and the back piece to form the drawer shape. When the drawer pieces are glued less the front and back pieces I then use a band saw to cut out the cavity which will become a drawer after I glue the front and the back on. I find I have to put photos in photobucket which I have never done so bear with me for I don’t know what I will show you.

WOW…the cutting has to be so precise, and time consuming.There must be a lot of sanding.I can cut good with my 788, but I would never even attempt that. I’ll stick to my bandsaw.
Will you sell it, gift it, or keep it?

Wow! I didn’t think of that. It is somehow cooler that band saw box but I think it’s more complicated. You did an amazing job on that! Superb.
