I have been thinking about making another table lately. I had so much fun building the Sewing Table that I wanted to make something for our house. And my wife has wanted a place to put her collection of jewelry. So we came up with this idea (actually it was mostly her idea) and I started doing some designing today. This is what I came up with so far.
The idea is to make a hall table with a lifting “lid” and a hidden jewelry case underneath with lots of room for necklaces, bracelets, rings, etc.
I came up with this alternating single arch design, but I may have seen something similar elsewhere. I’m not sure. The inside will be full of movable dividers. The shelf on the bottom will appear to float since it will be suspended by brass pegs attached to the bent-lamination mahogany arches.
I plan to make the top out of the same stock I made this box top from:
And the apron and legs from the same Birch I used for the Sewing Table:
Again, I’ll be blogging the process. Let me know what you think!
