This is another commissioned piece that I completed for the holidays. Canarywood with Birdseye Maple.
There are 6 horizontal drawers that have removable dividers that divide each drawer into 9 compartments.
The left vertical drawer serves as a necklace holder with 14 hooks ( 7 on each side ) and the right vertical drawer is for earrings with slots to hold 45 pair of earrings ( one side only ).

Dimensions are approx. 17” tall, 15” wide, 9 ” deep.

Finished with Watco danish oil and Black Bison wax.

That’s Really Beautiful work… Thank you for sharing it.

Perhaps it is a beginners question, but what is the nature of the left and right vertical drawers: is there hardware that supports them or guides in the bottom of the jewelry box?

Good stuff as always, Gene. Really like the contrast with the drawer fronts and the dividers and pulls. The inlay on the top is that other Majestic Eagle touch that makes it a signature piece.

Really beautiful work there. My wife deserves something like that, although it then sets me up for having to fill it!
