I love the ‘cove and pin’ joint, so I designed this jewelry box to showcase it. It’s a complicate build but I think the end result is worth the effort.

Unique joinery and a fine build. Is the joinery made with a jig?

danriffle, very attractive and tight joinery, especially for a jewelry box. I also like that you showed off your concept by eliminating the ‘box’ sides.

Just curious how strong the cove & pins are compared to lap, half-blind dovetail or box joints. For a jewelry box they are more than adequate, I’m sure, and beautiful. Got an spare pieces you’d be comfortable submitting to a stress test?

Thanks, everyone! The joints are done with a shop made jig and a bunch of hand work.

I like it. Well done, nice style too. It’s good to see designs outside the norm.

Dan, I like the joinery on the drawers. You have a fine design and finish. Looks like you are making several copies. I am surprised you did not carry the clover design through to the leg joints as well. Maybe it would be too much. I like the open concept to show off your joinery.

What is the plan for the top? Would it function better with a rim or as another storage area with a lid? Is the plan to pull the drawers and set them on the top? Nice concepts and interesting design. Skillful work. Keep boxing and keep posting.
