Project Information

This is a Walnut & Curly Maple jewelry chest that was comissioned for my cousin's girlfriend who has alot of necklaces. A little different than what I am used to but it was such a pleasure to take on something different and stretch my skills a little. The vertical drawers ( I needed a duplex camera I guess ) have necklace hooks on each side of each drawer, providing 28 altogether for her…......... should be enough I think. All drawers are lined with suede cloth and the dividers in the drawers are removable. The finish is 4 coats of Danish oil and then 3 coats of Black Bison wax hand rubbed. Dimensions are: 18×16 x 10

I kinda thought the same thing, Odie. Gene certainly is one skilled woodworker/designer and can carry his own stones without an issue.. But it was flattering that someone would consult with me on finishing, and since I like to ramble on - it's fun and friendly. Go Gene, Go!
Can't wait to see your next project…

Gene, this is just superb. The figure on that maple, the joinery. I'm catching up on other's posts at the moment and I just had to take a closer look.

Rob & Martyn: Thank you both for the wonderful compliments, much appreciated.

This was a fun build and it stretched my skills a little, which is always good…....

I hope that someday I will get close to making boxes of the high caliber that you do Martyn !
