Well done, there is nothing second rate about this box.

If i may be so bold as to make a suggestion,

if the blade entry point for bandsawing the drawer is located in the darker section of the timber and follows the line of the grain, then when glued up the entry point would not be so apparent. Hope this helps?

Finally a bandsaw box that’s different!
Now that you have one under your belt, try the next one with a fancier wood. It will look fantastic!
My only criticism is that you didn’t remove the excess flocking from the top of the drawer. A damp rag over your finger tip should do the trick.
