This here is a jewelry chest for my wife. She used to work for a jewelry store and she bought lots of stuff because we could get ”a great deal” because they had a generous employee discount.

Anyway, it is made from leopardwood and maple and features a small hidden drawer. It’s based on plans for a Toolbox I saw in “Woodsmith”.

Very nice looking, the leopardwood really sets it off. Is the middle drawer the hidden one? Does it pivot out? Very cool.

Really like the wood and the ‘happy face’ doors. A professional job.

Nice job. I like the selection of wood and grain patters. The polished drawer pulls and handles also give it a nice touch. I have that plan too and had considered making one. Your influence makes me want to go out and get some exotic wood to build this. :)

I’m sure your wife will cherish it for years to come.
Again, great job and thanks for sharing.

The selection of wood really stands out. Were there really good discounts or is that just her story?

Nice work!

well, Brian…”really good discount” all depends on your point of view…LOL

But yeah, they were selling at 10% over cost, so we did get some heirloom quality stuff at a price I could ALMOST justify. Of course we hadn’t had children yet either.
