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.
