This is a Walnut Spice Chest I built as a jewelry chest for my wife. It is based on the one Charles Neil did on his Mastering Woodworking site. I had also built an Arch Top Spice Chest for my daughter earlier and of course when I was done my wife said she wanted one. I changed around the drawer configuration because she wanted somewhere to hang necklaces. Keeping true to spice chests there are a couple of hidden drawers and compartments. Adds a little fun to the build. The top and the door panels came from a single piece of nicely figured Walnut I was saving for the right project. The drawer fronts are Walnut Burl veneer. This was actually my first time veneering something. I will definitely be using more veneers in future projects. I just have to finish lining the drawers with velvet and then spend the rest of my life paying for the jewelry to fill the drawers.
