Here’s a variation of the cantilever box – with thanks to the inspiration provided by KirkSawdustmaker.
It’s made from Huon Pine and Lace She-oak.

If I am not mistaken, I recall this design goes back to Frank Lloyd Wright originally. Looks to me as though you tweaked some design elements to give the piece your own original spin. The wood combo is outstanding, as is the overall quality of the work.

Very cool. The fit on the drawers is outstanding.

Beautiful! I love your contrast in the drawer to the box. Final glue up is a b*tch isn’t it? Trying to keep everything properly aligned. A last suggestion, I got some wooden beads from Walmart with a 1/4” hole. Glued in a 1/4” dowel, drilled out the front of the drawer, and used those as the pulls.
Look forward to seeing more of your stuff.

Very Nice,
I like the creativity, quite original, at least to me.
