It's a band saw box. The are many books on the subject.

I'll assume they use some means to temporarily hold the log flat and then it's a pretty straightforward band saw box. Have a look at "Building Beautiful Boxes With Your Band Saw" by Lois Keener Ventura.
Normally you would saw off the back, then cut out the drawers, then glue the back on again. I would guess that in this case there is no back, the drawers go all the way through, but I could be wrong.

Thanks for the info < i'll see if that book has what I'm looking for.. Yeah, I think they would cut the back off, not sure how they make the drawers, would they break the bandsaw blade and then put it through a drilled hole then mend the blade back together? Seems like a lot of work...

Cutting and rewelding the blade is more common in metalworking than woodworking. In fact most metalworking band saws have a welder built into the saw for this purpose. But this is usually not done in woodworking. Usually with a band saw box there is an entry cut and then all of the cuts for the drawers are one carefully planned continuous cut. Once you get to the end then you shut off the saw and back out. There are two ways to handle those entry cuts. Either you embellish them or you try to hide them by gluing and clamping it back together. In the book I mentioned in the cover art you can see the entry cuts and you can see that he makes no attempt to hide them, he treats them the same as the cuts around the drawers. I don't *see* any entry cuts or evidence of a seam in your link but that doesn't necessarily mean they aren't there.
