drawers slightly pulled out. The handles are the runners. This idea was inspired by Krenov.
Box is on 2 runners that are joined to the base with sliding dovetail joints.  The runners are joined to the cabinet with mortise and tenon

This box is lacewood and purple heart. The branches are wenge and the leaves are cocobolo. The handles were inspired by James Krenov and are the runners for the drawers.  The drawers are maple and are dovetailed.  This box is one of my favorites.
