A friend has seen some other stuff that I have done and asked if I could design/build a jewelry box for her daughter for Christmas. This is the final project, and I can finally share now that it has been given.

Made of solid cherry with box joint corners. This was my first attempt at several different things including a drawer and removable segmented trays. All in all I’m really happy with it. I’ve definitely still got some learning to do, but my incra jig has earned its keep in my shop. Can’t wait to upgrade to the LS.

Great looking jewelry box with a lot of built in features.
Are those Soss hinges or Barrel hinges … They really give a light look to the back edge.
How did you do Abigail’s name … wood burning??
+1 on the drawer, nice touch, and the knob fits and looks good.

Thanks everyone! It means a lot when other woodworkers like something I’ve done. @Grumpymike I used barrel hinges and really liked them. I used a photo transfer method I found on Jay Bates YouTube channel for the name on the front. You can find the video here: http://youtu.be/cEdmQRduUww

Awesome – and very inspiring. Love the compartments, the segmentation…

I’m still new – and I’m guessing those two brass/gold pins lock the drawer from sliding out till you’re ready?

Thank you. I appreciate the kind words. I’m not sure what brass/gold pins you are talking about? Maybe the magnets that line up with the metal pins in the lid? But there is no lock on the drawer, it is free sliding.

Maybe this will show better what I meant.

Again – great box, and we appreciate you sharing. Happy New Year.

Oh ok! No those are the hinges. They are called barrel hinges. They are concealed to give the back a clean look. Happy new year to you too!
