i took the lidded boxes i have been making and the valet boxes and made this you can see in the 5 picture
lot of groves for the top tray and the panels the drawers slide on. this was a hard glue up. (many colorful metaphors ) went into this glue up. did not line the bottoms of the drawers i think to cover the wood just wouldn’t be wright. for being birch ply the drawer bottoms came out nice.
woods are padauk and birds eye maple. finish is wipe on poly about 4 coats
might make a dollar if i sell this one
last picture is of things to come… finally a drum sander to call my very own (hate belt sanding cutting boards)

Wow! beautiful.
I like to see the progress of you drum sander. I can find the electric motor here in my country, but hard to find the arbor/shaft and all other accessories. What is the most suitable RPM of the motor? Do you have info where I can buy most of the hardware?

Great contrast in wood. Let me know when the belt sander is done, I’ll be over.

Great job on the box.
Is that going to be a thickness sander or a V-drum type?
