The design of this box was inspired by Bob Dickey.
Small jewelry box/chest. This jewelry box is built from curly maple, spalted maple, and black Walnut. The curly maple from NE Ohio and the black walnut is local (Missouri). The box has two drawers with removable dividers and the top compartment is open for larger items. The box is 10.5” x 8.5” x 8.5”. The finish is about 8-10 coats of Waterlox applied by wiping on, allowed to cure then a light rubbing out.

Thanks for looking.

-- Mony

Wow that’s a really nice tool box. The wood grain and finish looks spectacular. What are you using to rub out the waterlox?

That is one of the most beautiful and beautifully designed jewelry boxes I’ve ever seen. The drawers and how you matched the grain really takes it to another level.

Great design. I think the wood selection is what really makes it stand out.
