This box features three pull out drawers two of the same size one a-top of the other and one smaller but deeper drawer, it comes with one hidden drawer and two lift out trays, inside of the lid is another new design, a necklace hook system with a keeper, I chose the wooden keeper over the elastic velvet keeper that I had recently inquired about via the forums and am testing this style out with my girlfriend to see how practical and functional it is, I left a 3/4” gap at the bottom of the keeper just in case a necklace was to get loose from her fingers it can be retrieved, if for some reason this system doesn’t work I’ll use my heat gun to melt the glue so the keeper can be removed and we’ll revisit the elastic velvet method, under the lid also has partitioned compartments for her various other items, it also features a ring holder inside the large tray.
The woods used in this project are Nogal, also known as (Peruvian Walnut) the lid, splines, drawer pulls and the wooden hinges are spalted Hackberry from mine own private stash, the spalting is also my doing via my spalting pit.
The only mistake I made on this box was key placement, I’ll have to be more mindful on my next box so as to space to include keys on the lid portion.
This box measures 13” x 9” D x 9 1/2” H and is finished in a single coat of tung oil, a single coat of non waxed shellac as an end grain sealer, two coats of my own mix wipe on poly satin finish and a final wipe of paste wax.
Thanks for viewing and comments are always enjoyed.
