Project Information

I just finished making this walnut and maple jewelry chest as a gift for a friend's wedding.
Also made some tigerwood+maple coasters as a stocking stuffer.

All wood construction (Except drawer bottoms which are 1/8" plywood).
Interior drawer boxes are solid mahogany joined with rabbet joints.

Frame is joined with dowels and everything was glued with Titebond II.

Finish is 2 coats of boiled linseed oil cured for a week each coat and then many many coats of wipe on poly.

Looks very good, not a fan of the glossy finish, think a soft matte finish with the Walnut would better suit it?

A fair amount of work-hours here, and a fine result!

Some things I might have done differently, but to each his own. I am sure the newlyweds will love your piece.

My only criticism is that perhaps it is better to take photos with a neutral background, as your box is sorta lost in the mayhem that surrounds it:))
