This is my version of the Wood Magazine Jewelry box. This was a Christmas gift for my daughter who wanted a box just for earrings with a lot of small compartments. She picked out the design from a bunch of different pictures that I showed her. I had originally picked up some Wenge that I planned to use for her box (as she wanted something dark), but when she settled on the design and saw the contrasting woods of the Wood Magazine version, she decided she liked that. I had a variety of lighter woods that I showed her and she decided on the Ash. I love the combination of the two. I may have to make some other projects with this combination.

The dividers do come out and can even be rearranged if she decides to store more than just earrings.

It is a good look. Ash is underrated too much.

That’s a great looking jewelry box! I like the wenge/ash combo—and I’m sure your daughter loves it!

Nice work on your design, really like the contrast in wood selection. Have to agree with Steve on his comment on Ash is under rated.

The proportions and color scheme are spot on, great job (and I hope you didn’t pull out too much hair making those insert dividers)!

Do you recall the magazine issue you saw the project in?

Thank you all.

It was from Issue 165 October 2005 Wood Magazine. My wife had found a collection of wood magazine that someone was giving away in our local paper. I have been enjoying going through the hundreds of magazines and finding all kinds of great project ideas.

The plans for this particular one are also available from Woodcraft – you will notice the similarities in woods:

Beautifully designed box! The light and dark wood really make it very attractive. It sure does catch your attention!
