This jewelery box was made for a customer that is a jeweler. She wanted a large box with about 30 spaces for small jewelery, and loads of space for pins, and earings. I sent her over to Lumberjocks to find a design that she liked and she choose Probablylost’s necklace Cabinet (http://lumberjocks.com/projects/12103).
Due to a need to display large amounts of earrings and pins we chose a to make 8 hangers that will have a lose weave fabric to pierce the pins through. These pictures do not show the fabric as the customer has agreed to make them.
The doors are mortise and tenon as are the hangers, the drawers are hand cut half blind dovetails. The design is almost exact from Doug Stowe’s Beautiful Inlay Boxes.
All thoughts and comments are welcome. The box took about 20-24 hours to complete. The finish is Vermont Coatings semi-gloss. It is a very low VOC finish, it was great to work with due to the extremely low odor, but the jury is still out for me regarding the overall performance of the finish. The hinges are Brasso knife hinges, their performance is awesome.
