Here is the last jewelry box made of walnut and ash. The piece of ash I used for the drawers had a very distinctive pattern that I thought would look nice on the drawers. The box was finished with several coats of Danish Watco Oil and topped with paste wax. Note missing knob…backordered!

Here is a link to a video on the making of the box YouTube

Very nice looking work! I wouldn’t mind having an entire bedroom set that looks just like that.

another great jewelery box. The ash drawer fronts are quite exceptional! That is certainly a one of a kind.

I don’t generally like mixing sapwood and heartwood like that, but this really looks nice!
