This is the first Jewel box I ever made. It was a gift for my daughter, Marcie. The drawer just slide in slots in the carcase and have loose fitting dividers.

The carcase is made from 1/2” maple laminated with veneer then milled to shape with a router to expose the maple. The bulk of veneer is walnut cut so the grain direction added to the style. The squares under the brass pulls are zebra wood.

There is a hidden chamber built into the box. These are always fun.

Thanks all for the the kind words on my first post.

very interesting – to me, the contrast is more interesting than the build but none the less a REAL nice jewelery box.
