There is no draw, the piece you see in the clip is the lid being turned. The box is a long hollow form with a lid, possibly closer to a lidded vase than a box. The "U" shape is cut from the centre piece laid down on its long side.

Yes, correct. Also some are carved after turning.
The finial on the one you mentioned presents as offset turning. Is that the case?.
Probably around about 600x80mmx80mm
Approximately what width are the front and back and the "square" dimensions of the blank to start with.
Yes, all glued back together. The walls are about 19mm thick, so plenty of spare material to play with.
When you say "turning techniques to the box" I gather this is after the box is glued back together and with the draw fitted. Interesting that the blank on the lathe would then be a hollow without much room for error if the front and back are only thin.
They look like shorter versions of a similar design to the long lidded box. The emphasis is on the "decoration" rather than a box for practical uses.
The middle and lower left thumbnails on page 3 of the Artwork section are squatter and more along the lines of the type of bandsaw boxes that are posted on this thread. Any comments on that?
Growing old is much better than the alternative!
