Designed and built this latest project (dec 2014) as a Christmas present for my wife. This was the first time I didn’t buy any new tools to go along with it, as has been my custom :) 6 divided drawers and 2 swing out necklace cabinets with top trunk style lid. Will hold over 100 necklaces without tangling any of them and lots of storage for other items.
Built with curly maple legs and apron, the rest of the material is solid wood edging and veneered plywood, shop made, with quilted sapele, AAAA Birdseye maple, curly maple, walnut burl, walnut, and etimoe. Finished with a fine furniture grade French Polish after popping wood with Danish oil. Project time was approximately 50 hours.

Beautiful work. Really like the design and wood. Drawer dividers are a sweet touch!
