I really like the composition and form of this piece. Is this your own design? Are those dovetails showing on the front of the drawer? That tiger maple top is beautiful – wish I could find some of that around here.

Thx, and no it’s not an original, just a non-shaker use of woods. I worked from a picture of a traditional sewing box that I printed off at an auction site. Yes, the drawer is dovetailed as well as the table supports and leg connections. The finish is shellac, but I did wipe on some BLO on the maple to pop the figure first.

Nice, but need more pictures please! Does the top lift, and how does the drawer work, it looks like the sides and the sides of the box under the top? Welcome to Lumberjocks (the questions now cometh….)

Hacksaw007, the top is screwed (elongated holes) to the drawer slide rail and does not lift. The drawer opens on both ends. The top and drawer is supported by the yoke.
