« Part 5: Top and Base and Trim Part 6 of Jewelry Case Build series Part 7: Tiny Drawers and BLO to Finish »

Continuing with the tiny drawers, of which there are six, I constructed a little “cabinet” for them to sit in. They basically just sit on little shelves, negating the need for slides etc, which in this case, are not at all practical due to the size of this case. Nothing rocket science here, just fiddling with 12 little drawer fronts/backs and 12 little drawer sides. All 24 pieces got a small rabbet in the bottom edge and the sides each got rabbets in the ends where they will meet with the front and back. Today I’m glad I have all those tiny clamps I never use!

I also cut six little squares of baltic birch (1/8”) plywood for the drawer bottoms.

Small things are a lot more fun to make than large things. This is looking very good.
