jewelry chest #3: almost done

05-12-2010 12:52 AM by Kate | 3 comments »

Now that the basics are done, it’s time to add doors and drawer fronts. I used some resawn walnut for the door panels. I like the matching grains. Now the outside of the box is done, it’s time to work on the details. Check out the link to see what I did on the inside of the jewelry case.

bloodwood jewelry box #2: Jewelry box coming along but lots of decisions to be made

04-17-2010 04:36 PM by Walt M. | 5 comments »

The jewelry box is coming along as you can see. I also have the top glued together but no pics yet. I have a tray that I’m working on but not anywhere complete . I also haven’t decided on a color of velvet to use, I have red crushed velvet but I was thinking about dark blue or black I don’t know yet. Also I’m thinking ahead about the hinges I would like to use brusso hinges for small boxes or some other type of quality hinge but the problem I’m concerned about is...

Jewelry storage

11-16-2009 05:49 AM by epp_dog | 5 comments »

I wanted to make a storage case for my young niece who LOVES necklaces (and my sister who is tired of untangling said necklaces). I started my inspiration from one of Doug Stowe’s books. I am using the basic dimensions but adding more of an “Arts & Crafts” feel. I also will not be adding his fabric panels. I also want to make a necklace carousel to add extra storage rather than just around the sides. I have been designing this as I go which means a lot of trips to t...

TOPAMAX CHALLENGE #2: Made some more progress

10-26-2009 03:12 AM by kolwdwrkr | 8 comments »

Well here is some new progress on the Topa Challenge. It is NOT glued together at this point. Just has a few pieces of tape to hold it together to get pics. I need to break it down and dado out the groove for the bottom. Then I need to sand profusely and then glue together. After that I plan on using Padauk to do all the corners, maybe. I’m digging the miters on this piece. The effort to get all the grain to line up all the way around has been fun, and adding the borders of padauk ma...

Mom's "Box" #1: Planning and foward thinking

04-27-2009 04:53 AM by DavidH | 1 comment »

This past Christmas my mom was showing off her pin collection, and she keeps them all in these small jewelry boxes, and the thought hit me that it would be nice to build here box that she could hold all if not most of these pins in. Well as I thought and thought about it and this ‘box’ quickly turned into a small cabinet. My idea is for a standard looking upright jewelry cabinet and when you open it there are drawers in the main case and also smaller drawers in the doors them...

Ongoing Jewelry Box - Interior Dividers and Trays

12-06-2008 02:35 AM by Greg3G | 4 comments »

The input was for the most part was to use Wenge for the interior. So….here it is. Please keep in mind I have not decided on a finish yet. I am leaning towards a Danish Oil type of blend. Trays in the box Trays removed Trays made of Wenge and Ambrosia Maple. Bottom of the trays, showing off the Ambrosia Maple. Please pardon the photography…I’m not great at it. Should have used a tripod.

New Jewelry box in the works...and I want your input.

12-01-2008 02:00 AM by Greg3G | 13 comments »

Ok fellow LJ’ers. I am working on a new jewelry box and I would like your input on what wood to use on the interior for the dividers and trays. The box is made with Lacewood, with Padauk and Wenge stripes and accents. The box does not have a finish on it yet (just FYI, I am planning on using a gloss poly and then rubbing out back down to a semi-gloss.) Here is what I currently have in stock. Curly MapleLace wooda very little bit of Sapele WalnutWengeAmbrosia Map...

Adventures of a Novice Woodworker #3: Mortise? No thank you, I'm full...

09-30-2008 05:01 AM by Jeff Kochosky | 1 comment »

Now for the rest of the photos of the work performed so far on my introductory woodworking project. After cutting all the pieces to size, the next step was to mortise the legs. We used a router table with a couple stop-blocks set to control the length of the mortises. (If you look closely, you can see that the stop-blocks use our instructor’s patented Micro-Adjustable Depth Control System™ – he sells them for $30/set. What a deal!) Here are the legs after mortising. In...

Adventures of a Novice Woodworker #2: Now things are getting serious...

09-27-2008 06:21 PM by Jeff Kochosky | 3 comments »

Week 2 of my “Fundamentals of Furniture-Making I” class has ended, and things are really coming together. Well, not literally… everything is still in pieces. But it’s all making lots and lots of sense. However, before I get too far into this, I promised in my first post that I would include photos this time around. So, let’s start at the beginning: Here is the workshop at the Connecticut School of Woodworking: And this is what we started with for the carcas...

Adventures of a Novice Woodworker #1: Woodworking 101

09-25-2008 03:12 PM by Jeff Kochosky | 7 comments »

I consider myself to be a true novice when it comes to woodworking. My current “workroom” (actually the garage, minus my wife’s car) consists of a 10” contractor’s saw, and a 10” compound miter saw. I know that there’s a few more pieces that I need/want before I can start really being productive, and I’ve heard rumors that there’s at least a router in my near future… As the first step in my journey into the world of woodworking, I...
