My granddaughter turns 6 next month and I decided to build a cherry jewelry box for her. The design is something I found online, but I modified it along the way to suit both my preferences and my meager skills. The E is birch I cut out with my scroll saw. Several coats of Watco Danish and a coat of paste wax on top. Oh and I tried my hand at free handing the mortises for the hinges with the router.

Very nice! She’ll love it but probably doesn’t have much jewelry at her age :)

I like it – I’m betting it’ll see more than jewelry when she starts playing and hiding things
