Just finished up two boxes ready for delivery and I thought I would show you my version of the ever popular jewelry box.

6 horizontal drawers and two vertical.

The boxes pictured are:
1. walnut and poplar
2.Curly maple, spalted maple, and birdseye maple with walnut pulls
3.African mahogany and spalted maple with walnut pulls
4.African mahogany with walnut pulls (realized too late that I messed up the order of the drawers for the grain to flow from one to the other…live and learn. )
5.earing holder
6.necklace pegs

I also do these with a single door. I always look for unique pieces for the panels unless requested otherwise.

Thanks for looking

Very nice job. Nice choice of woods.

I’m kind of torn though, because although these are nice and I often wonder why people don’t lump projects that are all the same together in one post, I also like to see some details, or progress pictures that way we all can get an idea or two. It could just be me.

Can you provide some more detail aroud the vertical boxes? (The boxes that flank the drawers in the middle section.) I’m interested in how the storage configuration works in these boxes. Are these primarily for necklaces? Do they hang from top to bottom or from side to side?
