A Cufflink Cabinet

My cuff links were getting out of control, so it obviously called for a small cabinet to house them. I used some distressed walnut for the carcass, including a giant knot in the top, spalted sycamore for the drawer fronts, and walnut and maple dividers for inside the drawers. I used some long dovetails for cabinet joinery. I never used dovetails like this before, but they were pretty simple, and super strong.

Wow. ... and I thought I had a lot of cufflinks.

Your box looks great. I like the contrast. Nice dovetail work.

Nice drawer front wood grain. Very nice interior small compartments.
