This jewelry box was a lot of fun to make. I wanted to do something with a 8/4 piece of Hickory I had. I layed it down next to a piece of Zebrawood and knew then that those two woods were what I was going to use.
All the pieces on the box were chafered to 45 degrees. I thought it added to the character of the box. When it came to the drawer fronts, I chose Walnut.
I put different dividers in each drawer. Some with 4 spaces and some with 12.
Finished off with 4 coats of Lacqure.
Hope you enjoy.
Merry Christmas to all of you!!!!!

Hey Rad, thanks. I built the drawers out of 1/2” Birch plywood then stained.

An exceptional piece. That is some of the best Hickory I’ve seen. I wouldn’t have guessed that was what it is. Is this an original design and how many hours do you have in it?

Jerry, Dave thanks
Wrangler, I had seen a piece that gave me the idea, but I created it as I went along. I have probably 20+ hours in it.

I like your style Duck, just not the same old square box, yours always have a bit of flair that makes them unique.

Might try on a scrap piece of Hickory: Coat with tung oil or BLO, let it dry over night, spray with shellac, and then put on the lacquer … sanding between coats of course … Makes that hickory really pop.

Grumpy, I might try that next time. Hickory only costs me $3.50 bf. Zebra. Is $16.50. Probably do more in Hickory

This is fantastic duckster. I like the design, the front doors, the wood combos…..... I really like the whole caboodle.
