Here is another jewelry box I made out of cherry. The doors and the top are made from one piece of cherry with te grain running around the sides and top. The drawers are made from a different piece of cherry. I left a little bit of the sap wood on the front. The drawers are made out of ash and the runners are maple.

Very nice looking box. I’ve had a similar design in mind for myself. Not sure of the dimensions but it looks pretty big.

The bow front has not been mentioned yet but I will.

Real nice – I totally like the bow front drawers meeting the flat front on the necklace sides. Beautiful jewelery box

You have created a fine piece. I like the style as it has a certain Art Deco symmetry especially with the bowl front drawers. We’ll done

Great design, love it, in fact, when I looked at your photo #4, it reminded me of the old 1940’s Wurlitzer (sp?) Juke Box with bow front and the bubble lights where the fluting is … A wonderful box with a lot of character. ... The sap wood is a nice touch, I like it.

Thanks…I had to google the Wurlitzer to see what it was. Unfortunately I wasn’t around in the 40s to see it in person. Nice boxes.
