This jewelry box (plans available through woodonline) was a Christmas gift for my Sister. This was my first attempt at woodworking to such a small scale and I could not believe how much more difficult it was than building a cabinet or chest. Every little error is magnified ! Just trying to align the hinges on the doors took me hours to complete to my liking … It was worth all the effort though .. she loved it !

Nice job!

Isn’t it funny how the smaller the piece, the bigger the errors look? :-)

Nice case. I’m sure your sister was thrilled. Now you are ready to make some nice wall clocks; even more challenging in my book.

With my law enforcement background I’m not a fan of jewelry boxes. They just give burglars an quick easy target. But they are nice for “costume” type jewelry. Expensive stuff should be locked up or well hidden.

MonkeyMan,
Really nice build. I’m sure your sister loved it. I assume the lighter wood is maple? The contrasting woods really add to the custom look! I just saw the tool box for your also-anyway you need more family to remember at Christmas, if so just call me Cuz-Cuzzin!

Thanks everyone for the nice comments … The piece is made from black walnut and birds-eye maple for the drawers and door pulls … I’ve already started planning my next gift … a tack trunk for my youngest daughter :-)
