This is a jewelry box I made for my wife this mothers day, it is made from cutoffs and shorts leftover from other projects that I could not discard.

The case is made from reclaimed oak and chestnut, I believe (but not sure) the drawer fronts are oak burl veneer, drawer dividers are ash and lined with leather.

H 6” W 12 1/2” D 9”

That’s some nice work right there! I really like the figure on the fronts of the drawers.

I’m sure your wife was delighted. The box is beautiful, but now you’ll need to fill it for her. Maybe you should have made it smaller! ;-)

Love it! I’ve been thinking about making a jewelry box but couldn’t find a design that moved me. This is just what I’ve been looking for. Now I need to research how to use veneer. Congrats on your DT3

Thanks all.

lightweightladylefty – I thought about filling it with our grand daughters play jewelry for the pics. :)

recycle1943 – the design/construction consisted of using up what I had on hand.
