This was jewelry box for the middle grandaughter, Ashley. She is always working in my shop with me and she said she wanted a box to put all the necklasses in that she had made. There were about 30! I asked for a rough sketch from her and this was the result. There are four rotating necklass holders, a box in the top and a secret drawer. The drawer has a custom made steel spring loaded catch that you only can open with a special tool. She requested that to keep out nosey sisters.
I had just got my stacked stile and rail router bit so this was a perfect chance to make some “skinny” rasied panel doors. The raised panels were made using the same router bit for the vertical edge trim and I glued on 1/4” oak plywood backs to complete the panels.

Hi bigike. It is red oak. I used satin polyurethane with a foam brush. Sanded with 400 and water between coats and put naptha in the last(3rd) coat. It makes it level out better and dry faster so dust does not have as much time to setle in it.

A fine looking oak case. Memories for a life time, a family heirloom that she can pass down to her children.
