I am always untangling my wife’s necklaces, for her. I had been looking for something for her to hang the necklace’s, but never found anything quite fit what I wanted. So I came up with this idea. I also wanted to make her a music box and had purchased a music box mechanism a couple of months ago. So I just combined the two.

The box is made with poplar ebonized with black India ink. For the drawer front and cabinet doors I used curly maple. The drawer ended up narrow and deep so I built storage dividers that simply lift out, for storing earrings and rings. I plan on building ring storage that will sit in the bottom of the cabinet under the earrings.

Music movements were traditionally installed in jewelry boxes as a primitive burglar alarm.

Good work.

Nicely done. I love the curly maple and ebonized poplar as well.

Thank you.

I want to experiment with using dyes to bring out (pop) the grain pattern. I gave watched a couple of videos on the process.
