This is the last of the 2008 X-mas gifts (for mom) This is an upright jewlery box for her necklaces. It is made out of African Mahogany and Black Walnut. It measures 18” tall by 14” wide and 6” deep. There are two panels with 10 brass hooks on each for necklaces and five velvet lined drawers for other jewlery. I found this piece of quartersawn mahohgany in a “thirds bin” and only paid $4.50 for it. I think it is the nicest looking piece I have ever found in a thirds bin. Definitlely worth every penny! (I wish ther had been more)

I will make one for my wife for valentines day. Thanks for sharing. Are you happy with the action of the pull out necklace holders? I have considered making one with a panel that slides out but stays attached. Any thoughts?
Happy holidays

Brent, I debated about keeping them attached, and decided to let them pull all the way out. I routed the slides so I could add a stop by putting a pin in, but thought it is a little more user friendly to be able to remove the whole panel. It is easy to slide back in, and allows you pick up pieces that may have fallen of of the hook an in to the drawer portion.

I like that you made the handles on the front, and the tie in with the handles inside.

Unique design, great execution. Especially like the hanger panel mounted in a removable drawer. Great find on the mahogany as well.
