Saw something like this somewhere on the internet. Wanted to see if I could do it so for my first one I just used pine and stained it red mahogany and cherry, finished with poly and waxed. There is a rod down the middle and washers in between each one so that each one can turn. I routed out the little spots for jewelry and my wife felted them. It is not very big, about 8” tall and 9” wide. Smaller jewelry, earrings, stuff like that.

very nice idea and nice result. I marked it as my favorite, may be, I’ll take this idea of rotating parts for other project than jewelry box.

Nice. How stable is it? Does it want to tip when swiveling a layer?
