This is a jewelry box I made for my bride one Christmas. The plans came out of ‘Wood’ magazine, but I can’t locate the issue. I modified it slightly by adding an additional drawer to give it a little more height for the necklaces. The wood is walnut and maple and I used seeded glass for the doors and side and an antique mirror for the internal panels. (I have a great local stain glass shop)

I finished the box with several coats of Watco natural oil and wax. – Yes; There was a piece of jewelry in it on Christmas morn.

Nice Job! You did a great job on the drawers and the bubled glass was a nice touch.

Nothing like a mirror to accent sparkly things!

I really like the lining you did with you’re drawers. Could you give me any tips on how to line my dividers like you did? beautiful though

When lining drawers I use card stock to make templates and then cut the felt to the template. In the case of dividers I try and cover them outside the box, I then cover the bottom and cut away a portion that will be covered by the divider (to provide wood on wood glue surface), then install divider with a couple dots of glue.

maluco – Thanks for the link – I had forgotten that I also reversed drawer/necklace sides.

I just went to the Woodstore website to try to order the plans and it won’t allow me to use my Paypal because I’m a “non-US Paypal user” :o(
