Sorry for the long absence. The job that pays has kept me traveling and my other on going projects (rocking chair, chess boards, and the like) are not boxes, so it’s been a rough couple months.
I started my wife’s jewlery chest (before she goes out and buys one )
The case is made from cherry. It will have 8 horizontal drawers and 2 vertical ones that will use dovetail slides as their sliding mechanisim. When you pull one of these vertical drawers out, it will pivot as seen by the sample walnut pic I made to test my idea. The pivoting left or right will enable her to hang the multitude of necklaces on either side.
The miter’d sides and top will be re-inforced with dovetail keys shortly. Basically the whole box will be hidden though as it will fit nicely in the center cubby hole of our armoire’.
Again, I apologize for my absence! More pics to follow!
