I made this two drawer jewelry box back in the mid 1990’s, it measures approximately 16” wide x 9” high x 10” deep. The design is based on a box built by John Reed Fox, a featured artist in a wonderful book entitled “Wood Boxes Design & Technique” by Tony Lydgate. I chose to make my box out of Purple heart and Beech. The box sits elevated on top a frame of Purple heart pillars and rails. The Beech drawers ride on Purple-heart slides. The handles are set off the drawer fronts with rectangular Beech posts, with two Purple-heart wedges driven into each post to secure the handle. The drawers are divided, and the bottom of each drawer is lined with velvet. Please excuse the quality of the pictures since they are digital photos of original photographs.
