The jewelry box is based on a design first posted by SPalm ( I modified the design in several ways. First, I increased the size to 12” x 6” x 6 1/2” , increased the number of pivoting drawers to six, each with a magnet to insure firm closure and added a bottom tray. I also added two maple leaf inlays on the top of the cover.

I haven’t seen the the piece that inspired it. But I like your rendition a lot. Do you have any pics from the build process? My wife has a new jewelry box on my short list of projects.

Way to go Roger. That looks great.

And nice mods. I especially like the divided drawers. Very clever.


Edit: the link you supplied to the original box is goofy – it should not have the final parenthesis in the hyper link.

That a real great piece of work Roger, lots of drawer space and like the leaf inlays. Pic 2 shows the similarity to Steve’s original box. What does Steve means by his box being goofy, it looks great to me.

Serious amount of time spent over a 10,000+ RPM mincer!

Beautifully executed!
