      That's pretty good DW...!!
      I don't see any kind of joint, miter or otherwise...
      What did you do, carve out the recess..?!? Then make a drawer to fit??

      Nice work...!!!!

        Really nice job, DW.

        Jim, my guess is that the wood is cut along the grain then glued back, since I'm assuming that the drawer is from the same block of wood, but I haven't figured it out yet, either. However it's made, it's really nice!

          Carole has it right. I cut along the grain and carefully glued it back together. Mahogany has a good straight grain which allowed me to do this one. The pivot is a hidden 1/4 in. dowel.
