Earring storage for my mom. She mentioned she’d like an organized way to store her earrings, so I made this last weekend for her. Just in time for Christmas. I had some scraps in the shop and I really liked the figure in the piece I used for the top. Actually don’t know what type of wood it is, but it’s very hard and close grained.

Applied 2 coats of amber shellac, rubbed out with 00 steel wool and finished with a few coats of paste wax.

First look I thought Cherry, but there will likely be a chorus of Alder coming through pretty soon. I like the grain for the top too.

What are the dimensions?

Super nice. Kind of Asian looking in the minimalist aesthetic. Are the drawers lined? I couldn’t tell from the picture.

Have your say...
