How would i go about modeling one of these?

Tried poly rectangle with smoothed edges and Boolean but no go.

any help would be very very helpful!

The way of modeling this object depends on what package you use, in Lightwave
try using box modeling, first create a box with the same dimensions of this object then create another polygon rectangle [keep it in (background layer)] to cut through using Drill tool which will cut through the selected polygon [in the forground layer] and keep adding new geometry in other layers and manipulating points (vertexes) by using Drag tool or simply select points and move them untill you reach the desired shape, you could use edge bevel to smooth edges and then convert the object to Subd
