I was looking for a project to make during a 2020 Pandemic Stay-cation. Daughter just turned 12 and needed a “grown-up” jewelry box. After searching for ideas online for months, I found this one…many others have made it much better but she likes it. Oak and Walnut, both locally sourced. I got to use a couple new techniques, including breadboard ends & making rabbeted drawers.

Looks great. I like the curved front and how the drawer pulls are integral.

No stain, just finished with a few coats of teak oil.
