« Part 8: Carcass work finally started Part 9 of Stand Up Jewelry Box series Part 10: Beginning to Finish and a Step Backwards »

This has definitely been a fun and challenging week for me. After changing out all of our smoke detectors on Monday, I started to walk the dog when I slipped walking out our back ramp severely spraining my ankle. Any work I could do was thus restricted for a few days (I’m still having some significant pain though I am finally able to walk on it.

However, I was able to cut the front and back carcasses as well as the mortises for the ring box, ear ring, and necklace holders. I also had to remake the necklace and ear ring holders as I realized I somehow miswrote my cut list and made them too short originally. But after two 12-hour days in the garage I’m a lot closer to being done with just two weeks to go for my original deadline.

I do want to find a mortiser for my garage some day. Although making the ones for the holders wasn’t all that difficult, I actually physically tired myself out after making the mirror frame that sits on top of the outer carcass. It’s not perfect but works and my plan is to nail it to the carcass once I get the mirror and the plywood backing in.

Another amazing idea…! This is also a very beautiful wooden piece of art. It will look very beautiful after a good color painted on it. As a college essay writer I am very interested to see this invention of yours. Thanks a lot for sharing such interesting information.

This is a very good jewelry box design for home use. I have been putting my stuff in a storage box made by self storage phoenix because it keeps my stuff safe from dust and rust. I am very thankful to you for such beautiful design of a stand-up jewelry box.

Have your say...
