« Part 13: Lessons Learned Already Part 14 of Stand Up Jewelry Box series Part 15: Almost Done »

I need a bigger workbench after events of this week – one of the main carcass boards fell and broke while I was trying to size and fit the legs before assembly. I chose not to use clamps as I needed full access to the sides and wasn’t ready to assemble it as it was still too cold. However, I did not lose as much time as I feared and am now set to finish this project up by the middle of next week with delivery scheduled for the end of the month. I still need to make a door to hide the music box wind-up but that is fairly easy depending on the type of hinge I will use. The only question I’ll have for it is the length of screws as I don’t need a door thicker than about a 1/4” but finding the right length screws is challenging.

But at least this much is done:

Bracelet holder made out of walnut and maple – the base is dyed to match the rest of the walnut and I’ll put lacquer on the rest before wrapping the larger dowel with felt

The legs are now stained and lacquer will be put on by Saturday.

And the necklace holders; she won’t have a legitimate reason to say she doesn’t have enough spots for them
