Gave this to my only granddaughter (17) for Christmas. Since this was my first jewelry box I felt a plan to follow would be better. This is Rodney Johnson’s plan (http://rodswoodworking.com/jewelry-box-plans.html). I basically followed his instructions on over-all size for the box, made only a few minor adjustments with the drawer slides.
Made from aromatic cedar and poplar. The finished is danish oil and 3 coats of poly, sanding 220 and 400 grit between coats.
The most difficult part for me was the finger joints. Aromatic cedar chips out very easy even with a good backer board. It was the third try using the Incra jig that I finally got it right.
Thanks for looking.
