Simple jewelry box from plans in a recent issue of WOOD magazine. Made from small pieces of Cherry that I had left from an earlier project. I probably spent way too much time trying to maximize my yield but waste not, want not. I added some little dividers to the drawers that the plan didn’t have. I also didn’t buy the speciailized ring holder the plan called for on the little slanted portion but instead just added some felt on top of a piece of 1/4” ply. I think applying that felt was the most difficult part and the inside of the door looks a little goofy without the felt going all the way to the top but that was all the longer the felt was that I bought so I just went with it. Finish is boiled linseed oil and shellac.
