no previous part Part 1 of Jewllery chest series Part 2: Development + sketchup »

well only 2 weeks till christmas and i have a plan i want to make my girlfriend a jewellery chest to hold all the expensive and lavish jewellery i have been buying her ;)
i have the gifts i want to get her all decided but as an extra touch i want to make her something special as she is always so supportive and loves looking at the stuff i make. well this time i want to design and make something for her, i have a rough idea of what i want to acheive. a maple box with propably 4 drawers wraped by a walnut frame with legs, the box and drawers will be mitre joints with walnut splines i also hope to do some detailig on the inside of the drawers as much as time permits. the over all look should be quite elegant and modern i hope, i know its not a great discription but i have a fair idea of what i want and will try jot down a sketch or two which may help ye understand a little better soon, i have not got long to make this as i can not start till at least monday or tuesday but the determination in me is strong and will hope to keep the blog updated daily…
thanks for reading this far Paul.

It all starts with an idea Paul!! You’ve already made it in your mind, now you just have to make it with your hands. I look forward to following along on the journey!!

Put it down on paper, so you’re more focused on what and where to start.
I believe you can do it, Paul.

If you aim for the moon and miss you might hit the barn, but if you aim for the barn you might hit the manure pile

Nothing ventured, nothing gained

Go for it !!!
