Not sure if I’m doing this right, but, here is the finished boxes. They’ve got 6 coats of wipe-on Poly, and I used coffee filters in-between coats.


A couple of Christmas gifts in the making. Oak and Walnut combination. Plans out of Wood magazine
The plans for this came from Wood magazine #192 Dec/Jan 2009/2010

Thnx everyone. I really liked the look of this project when I first seen it in Wood mag. I’ve got stacks of mags with about a zillion post-it notes stickin out the sides that I’ve been collecting for years, (chuckle chuckle) (I’ll have to take a pic o my stacks) and it’s grrrrreat that I’m finally getting to build some of em. I appreciate everyones input, good or bad.

Coming along very nicely. Great choice of woods.
I made this same box for my wife’s B-day last year. I used walnut as well but with some ambrosia maple.
There is an error in the plans, I believe it’d in the measurement for the drawer sides but I’m not sure as it was a while ago. I still had a great time building this jewelry box and the wife loved it. I’m sure the recipients of yours will be equally as happy. Have fun and keep up posted of the progress. Thanks for sharing.

Roger, haven’t posted pics of that project yet…..I admit I’m kind of slow in putting up projects here….I usually need my daughter’s help and we’ve both been busy lately….I’ll get it up eventually though
