I saw this jewelry box online, downloaded the plans, and thought I’d give it an attempt. Will give to my wife for Valentines day and I finished with a month to spare. Am happy with the finished product. The piece is made of walnut, with maple handles and maple boxes with a walnut face. Other than the top and base, all the parts are thin: 3/8 and 1/4 inch. There are 77 pieces of wood, 3 pieces of glass and two mirrors that had to be put together. I used Watco Spray Lacquer for the finish. First time I have used that. Hope you like it.

O.o

Wow!
Stunning piece, elegant, and quite simply perfect. Amazingly crafted – get the feeling this will be a top 3 for sure.

I made the same jewelry box in 2017 for my wife’s b’day. (Posted a picture.) As you said, there are lots of little pieces, but they all want together nicely. I used Watco oil and lots of hand rubbing. Yours is beautiful; good work.

Very nice.

Do you still have the link from where you obtained the plans?

Bobthewoodbutcher, I looked at the jewelry box you made for your wife. Great job. I have yet to put felt in the boxes, but I like the red felt you used. Was only going to put it on the bottoms of the six boxes, but you lined the sides also and I like that. Thanks for the idea.
