I've really struggled with this one, I think I pushed my skill level a touch too far, But its now as good as I can get it. This is the one I had problems with the wipe on poly. It must have had about 10 coats, each one scrubbed off and started again.

The photo has also made me realise I have to flock the drawers again.

Its a fair size, 7" across and the same deep.

Thanks, my wife is due to inspect it tonight. She's final quality control. But I think she's softer than I would be on myself. Its going to the UK next week for my daughters birthday, so no time to change anything now, except flock those inner liners again.

Angie, look up bandsaw boxes. glue it up, cut it out, hey presto just like a stick of rock.

Not matter how many ways you could say awesome it wouldn't do justice to that box.

Bob you say you pushed your skill level but it looks like you made a thousand of them. Needless to say I really like it.
