Second time I’ve done a two drawer/tray top design like this. I wasn’t paying attention, used a dull blade, or whatever and really was off having the same curve for the lower drawer opening (left versus right).

I figured I would not like the look & tried to think of a work around. Recalled an approach that LJ Tommy DiBuono used on a neat box back in December. So I cut out two new drawer fronts & glued them on to make a surface mount versus inset drawer.

I think I like the look enough to consider for more boxes, especially if I screw up again.
Any opinions on this look?

Wood is Cherry with Walnut pulls. H 6”, W 5”, D 4”. 4 coats Shellac & 2 coats Arm – R – Seal.

Thanks for talking time to look.

I like the look – different concept for a band saw box

In one way or another I have done something like this several times and I really like the look of the drawer fronts being very proud of the box, even when I use a different type of wood for the drawer front

Thank you guys. I’ll be putting in the local Gallery to see what people think as opposed to my “normal” boxes.
Larry, I’ll keep in mind the option for different woods for the drawer front.
