A jewelry box for my wife’s Christmas present is what my friend said when he called, ” and, I want to help” he did and this is what we came up with. We made a few changes from the MDF mirror box of the picture he brought over, quite a few actually. Curly Red Oak from my stash made sense, a lot of Brusso hardware, dovetailed corner’s a couple weeks later and it was finished. My friend Greg Allen came over with his photo studio stuff , shot some completed pics, here are two proof’s along with a door placement pic a another of how I dealt with future panel movement. The whole project was built from 2 very curly flitch matched boards that also had plain flat grain in them, the side’s have the same figure as the mirrored door. 48 inches high by 15 inches wide and my friend now has the WW’ing bug, and a very happy wife. Kind of fun not having to do the sanding, staining or paying for the brass hardware.

That could of been made to fit into a wall between two studs if it was 14 1/2” wide, then use a long dressing mirror for the door to give it that stealth look. Just an idea.

That was my suggestion Woodchuck1957 to my friend but he wanted a wall mount, looking at it hanging I think he made the right choice, when the sunlight plays off the curl on the sides it’s a trip.
