Project Information

The jewelry box is based on a design first posted by SPalm (http://lumberjocks.com/projects/57088). I modified the design in several ways. First, I increased the size to 12" x 6" x 6 1/2" , increased the number of pivoting drawers to six, each with a magnet to insure firm closure and added a bottom tray. I also added two maple leaf inlays on the top of the cover.

I haven't seen the the piece that inspired it. But I like your rendition a lot. Do you have any pics from the build process? My wife has a new jewelry box on my short list of projects.

Way to go Roger. That looks great.

And nice mods. I especially like the divided drawers. Very clever.

Edit: the link you supplied to the original box is goofy - it should not have the final parenthesis in the hyper link.

That a real great piece of work Roger, lots of drawer space and like the leaf inlays. Pic 2 shows the similarity to Steve's original box. What does Steve means by his box being goofy, it looks great to me.

Serious amount of time spent over a 10,000+ RPM mincer!

Beautifully executed!

Roger, what a spectacular design that takes full advantage of your tools and skills. This is the Swiss Army Knife of boxes. I like the attention to detail and the little things you did to make this even more special: the leaf inlay, the dip to let the drawers fully open, the thoughtful bumps at the back of the top tray to make the pivot rod stable, the carved dividers, the choice of woods and colors, magnets for stability, and the soft finish. Great work and a beautiful use of wood and skill. I take it that this is a combination of bandsaw and CDC to make such a well done piece, or was it just router and template work? Keep boxing and keep posting.

This is really impressive. Is the "how-to" a national secret or is it possible to know how you did rout these with such precision and symmetry? The drawers are awesome, just so nicely done!

Were templates used? Was is it all freehand?

Thanks!

I like the design and I like the walnut accents with the cherry. The inlaid leaves are that extra added touch that makes it special. I have put it in my favorites. Thank you for sharing this Roger.
