Jewelry chest

27” tall, 18” wide, 6” deep.
Curly maple, some walnut and bits of brass.
Drawer sides are dadoed and slide on wood glides.
That blue stuff covers swiveling wings. It’s for pinning earrings and other junk ladies collect that may get lost in the drawers. Drawers are lined with the same blue stuff.
