Looks to me like you are the one doing the rocking! Very nice work on the three tiered box..

If Woodworking is so much fun why isn't it called WoodFUNNING?

I've made a few videos

Wow, by the looks of that project, you don't need any help. Fantastic grain, fantastic work, fantastic looking project. That is gorgeous.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

I did not have any plans so I pretty much had to wing it, but I did follow kenbos lead & it went right along with what he had done.
the only major deviation was with drawer's and the dado cut into the sides.
I made a simple jig for my router to ride on only because I do not have a router table to make this cut.
For the bottom I used 3/16 hardboard with cork.
I did not document my build becuse I was not planing on participating in the challenge, who wants to compete against these guys!
I did enjoy this and maybe next time I might participate.

That is some seriously nice project for just winging it. I hope that my build thread was able to help you on this project. I'll say it again, it looks great. Puts mine to shame.

well ken i used walnut for the frame and maple for the drawers so it was the same wood's that you used so i personally dont think that the one i made looks any better than yours.
i guess maybe now i will have to get started on something a little tougher....maybe a motorcycle!
