Heres another jewelry box, this one I made for my wife in the mid 1990’s, it measures approximately 17” wide x 9-1/2” high x 11” deep. The design is based on a box built by John Reed Fox, a featured artist in a wonderful book entitled “Award-Winning Wood Boxes” by Tony Lydgate. The box is made mainly of Cherry for the carcass and top, and Afromosia for the drawer fronts. The box sits elevated atop a frame of Afromosia feet and rails. The Cherry handles are set off the drawer fronts with rectangular Afromosia posts, with Cherry wedges driven into each post to secure the handles. The drawer sides are made of maple and ride on Cherry slides. Brass bullet catches keep the drawers from being accidentally pull out. The box dimension were changed to accommodate the use of trays inside each drawer to provide for additional storage. The upper drawer is divided into small compartments and a couple of ring rolls. A shallow sliding tray rides back and forth on rails just above the compartment dividers. The lower drawer contains a lift out tray which sits above a single storage space. The drawers and trays bottoms are covered in velvet. Please excuse the quality of the pictures since they are digital photos of original photographs.
