This is a large jewerly case constructed of black walnut and figured cherry. The case is constructed with dovetail joinery. The drawers are designed utilizing the Hambidge progression, featuring dovetail joinery and burgundy velvet divided jewerly compartments.

The design was inspired by a 1950’s cabinet console television. What resulted is a marriage of retro with time-tested joinery details in this one of a kind keepsake case.

Whoopee! A box – I just love small wooden boxes. Perhaps this is not so small, but with no dimensions to tell me otherwise, I’m going to call it a small wooden box. (That’s a compliment from my perspective, Terry.)

In some respects, this piece is reminiscent of your second project here which I also like very much. Don’t take so long between posts, Mate.

Nice box – I like the dovetails and finish, the pull is pretty creative also.

Very beautiful jewelry box. Great design.
Dice rolling (one of great feature of this site) has brought it up to my attention to have a closer look.
