Credit to Triumph1 who originated this style jewelry box. I’ve used some slight variations in his design, but it’s the same concept. It has a pull out draw on each end and a lift out tray in each draw. Check out his page for some inspiring work with so many great ideas. I’ve used maple and quilted maple veneer, padauk on the legs, the pulls and finial on top are ziracote, The dividers in the lift out trays are 3 pieces of veneer (2 maple-1 walnut) glued together over a form. As Triumph1 mentioned, shaping the legs was very time consuming. The drawer fronts are curved with a pommele sappelle veneer over padauk. The finish is a wipe on tung oil base, rubbed out with 0000 steed wool between coats.

Hey Art—do you use some kind of CNC when making your stuff? Or is it all just scroll/bandsaw?

This is wonderful! It looks like the box is being carried away by something out of Tim Burton’s imagination. Nice design, choice of woods, colors and exceution. Love it!

No cnc. It took me a couple of years just to figure out how to post my pics on L-J. Me and computers don’t get along too well.

Very cool design. I like it! Reminds me of the claw crane game when you drop the claw to get toys or w/e.
