I made this jewelry chest for a client. The main body is made with Pecan. It had some beautiful grain in each piece.
The drawers and sliding necklace/bracelet boards are made with Walnut.. I made the slide for the sliding boards using a dovetail.
All the drawer dividers are also Pecan.
Drawer bottoms are lined with leather suede.
Finish started with Behlen’s wood sealer and 4 coats of Behlen’s instrument Lacqure.
Weight 35 pounds.
Thanks for looking.

Very different. And I like different.
I have never seen pecan for sale in my neck of the woods but if I did, I would give it a go.
Great box…...............

Thanks Ryder,,
Pecan and Hickory are alike. They are very dense and fairly heavy wood. Great to work with but hard enough to make sanding tough.
Thanks for looking.

Nice looking chest. Do you have a picture that shows the details on how the sliding necklace holders hold the necklace? It looks like a metal disc with a screw.

Great work, I like the Pecan / walnut mix for a tasteful stainless contrast. The doors are nice as well.

Hey Sawdust, if you expand the pictures you can see that there are clasp pins on one side of each board and Brass pins on the opposite side..

Thanks Rocks. I like to work with both.

Beautiful job, love the contrast between the sapwood and heartwood. How do the necklace holders slide out, drawer slides?
