OK…been away a little while traveling, but…back at it…Thank goodness.

Picture 1 is of the space that this new Jewelry Chest will go into. It’s the center cubby hole in the armoire, with as you can see is filled with some of my wifes jewlery still in boxes. I think it’s kinda funny, I make all these boxes and haven’t yet made one to hold all her things. maybe I’m unconciously a little scared she’ll try and fill it up.

Picture 2 is of the two boards that I just made. Originally they were 8 qtr x 16 wide by 10’ long. I ripped, resawed, jointed, glued back, planed and came up with these two beauties of cherry that will make up a lot of this chest.

It will have 8 drawers sandwiched by 2 vertical drawers that will slide out in order to hang necklaces, with a pivoting arm once the drawers are fully out to allow the drawer to pivot right or left.

Sorry for not having much more to show as I left my concept drawing at work. I’ll post it tomorrow.
