I was asked by a friend at work to make two jewelry boxes for his daughters. I found this plan in WOOD plans and built the one shown with walnut and ash. The second one is cherry and the same style, but the photo wasn’t suitable for posting. There are mirrors installed on the back panel on the left side, and on the divider between the necklace hanging area and the drawers. Overall dimensions 12” h x 11” w x 6.5” d.

Additional information (7/2/10)
A couple of folks asked for additional pictures. I must admit I didn’t take a lot during construction, but I did find this photo that shows all the pieces prior to assembly. Bert, you can see clearly how the drawers are installed, basically this entire unit slides into the right half of the box. The drawer front are routed out from behind to create a finger pull and is glued to the front panel of the drawer. Hope this photo answers some questions regarding the box.

Wow! Nice Work. I like mixing the species like that. I’ve been missing you on here. I reckon you’ve been busy in the shop. You’re buddies’ daughter’s will surely cherish these.

The pictures are a tad fuzzy, but from what I can tell my favorite part is the wood combination on the drawers. Good stuff….

Thanks Rick, I sent you a message. Maveric, I the photo was clear in my files, something must have happened when it was enlarged. Always was a better woodworker than photographer. Ken, I agree, both looked better than the picture. I have some construction photos I may try to post if they come out ok.
