Since I’ve been making men’s valet boxes I thought I’d give the ladies a turn, this box instead of the previous ones I’ve made, I opted to put the necklace hangers in the door opposed to the side wall of the box, the inner part of the box is cut with a bandsaw and then panels were cut of the fronts to give it a more professional look pretty much the same method I use to make the valet boxes, the bottom drawer is a ring drawer, the larger drawer in the center has a hidden drawer in it and I also optioned for an open tray on the very top of the box for a quick drop and go per-say, two of the drawers have lift out trays and the top drawer I partitioned, it offers my wooden hinges on the back for the side wing doors, both wing doors have book matched panels as does both the front and the rear to allow the spalting to flow vertical, the top plate, The top plate, I used a scroll saw to cut the center out with, earth magnets along with wood screws were used for the wing door latches
The woods I used to make this box were walnut and spalted hackberry for the outside and alder for the inside.
The measurements are 15” H x 12” W x 8 3/4” D and is finished in a single coat of tung oil, two coats of my own mix of satin wipe on poly and a final wipe with paste wax.
Thanks for looking and comments are always enjoyed and replied too.
