I built this jewelry case for my Niece’s Birthday next month. It’s made from Walnut and Bird’s Eye Maple. I cut the glass and mirrors myself. I enjoyed the build and I learned to really like working with Walnut! The “secret drawer” in the back was not part of the plans I was working from. The drawer was suggested on Lumberjocks so I worked that into the design. I think it adds a spark of fun to this piece.

Beauty, I like your drawer pull design.

Nice job. Well balanced design. I’m generally not a big fan of glass, but you make it work well here. My compliments.

Thanks Bigrock. The plan came from issue 13 of Wood Magazine back in October 1986.
