Just completed this jewelry box which was commissioned by my Aunt. Took me about a month working on it about an hour or so each day. She got the plans from a woodworking magazine that also included the hardware and asked if I could build it.

She didn’t realize that the box would be this BIG!! The picture of me and the box shows its size. To me it was more of a tool box, I could nicely keep my router bits in the drawers and what not.

Since this was a project that turned out so well I had my friend at work do some photography for me. As you can tell by the captions.

Definitely a project I am proud of and one to keep in the portfolio!!

Thanks for looking.

You should be proud of it. This is beautiful. What a great idea to have it photographed! I hope to aspire to this level of craftsmanship one day.

Boy that came out great Mike. This will show any customers you certainly know your stuff.
And, to be honest, I did think how nice it would be having one of those on the bench for bits and pieces and small tools and such.
Great job !

Yes, it is very nice. I’m sure that your aunt is proud to have such a talented nephew.

Fantastic work Mike! A very classic and elegant look. Smart move having it professionally photographed, it deserves that. I know she is very proud of it as she should be. Well done!

Very nice. I like how with the doors and the top open there is easy access to the hooks in the back. Very practical.

Great job on this Mike. Do you know what woodworking magazine the planes came from? I would like to try and do one, but I am sure it won’t come out this good.
