Jewelry Box / Lingerie Chest

I started these two projects in 2014, then took a two & half year break to finish my college education. Finally, these are ready in time for Christmas. I learned that you have to make two identical anythings to prevent my girls from fighting over them. This was my first project cutting dovetails by hand, I have a lot to learn to get those to come out right. I spent a lot of time selecting the drawer fronts, which is my favorite part. If I had to choose favorites, I like the one on the left with knots versus the blond streak on the front.

Really wonderful. You’ve put a lot of techniques into your chest that give me ideas for future projects.

Hey Brian,

Do yourself a favour and everybody else that wants to check out your great work (by 2) and repost the pictures correctly, My neck hurts! 50% of them are sideways.

I havent done any sideways work for years, back in the daze when I had my Ford Zephyr I was pretty good at getting it sideways, Yee Haa, but not any more!

-- Regards Rob

What type of finish is that? Spray gloss poly? Shellac?

The finish is Forsby’s high Gloss Tung Oil. I used 3 coats, 220 grit sand paper on first layer, wet sand 400 grit on second, they apply top layer thicker than normal.

Looks fantastic!! Where did you get the plans? if you designed it, do you have plans? I would throw you a couple bucks for some detailed drawings.

Very nice, I would say it’s one of a kind, but there are 2 of them.

Have your say...
