« Part 5: Interior Pieces Part 6 of Stand Up Jewelry Box series Part 7: More small work »

I have repeatedly said one of the best things of this project is that my eldest daughter and I are spending time together working on it. Unfortunately the extreme cold weather we are having has done a number on her health causing pain in her chest and overall discomfort. As such, she is unable to work in our shop for very long which has created a major damper on that time. So today, I took her out to Wright Patterson Air Force Base’s wood shop so we could build her portion of the project – the lower free standing drawers. With my assistance, she was able to joint, plane, and cut the two boxes leaving them ready for the plywood bottoms that we’ll cut on Sunday.

Once we finished them, I used the scroll saw for the first time to cut out the slots in the sides of the ring tray. The first set was cut too closely to the edges to be useful so once we got home I grabbed some of what was left of my walnut to cut new pieces. I hurried back out to the base making it to the shop in enough time before they closed. It still needs some clean up and the plywood bottom but here’s the ring tray

And the tray fits in the box fairly well but obviously everything is not glued up yet

Looks like an interesting project and it’s really great that you are doing a project with your daughter. A great way to bond.
