Project Information

As the title say's I made this for my wife for Christmas, it was a complete surprise for her. Made entirely of Ambrosia Maple. Three drawers on the bottom, top open's for more storage. Both sides open for necklace storage. Flocking has since been added to the drawers, let her pick the color.

That looks like a great gift John. I have never seen that type of wood for sale in my neck of the woods.
Are the plans for that box available….......................

Thanks for all of the positive comments. I do not have a plan for this, it was a custom build.

The dimensions are 20"h x 20" w x 10" d

I also forgot to mention that this lumber was at a local saw mill ready to be made into pallets. What a shame that would have been.

I've been looking for a jewelry box design for my wife and I think this may be it!

I know you said you didn't have any plans, but could you provide a few more measurement details?

What does the inside of the drawers look like?

Your last picture shows the lid and sides open and it looks like the top drawer is just a false front. Is it or does it open with a smaller size?

Thanks and great job. I like this!
