I designed this box for my mother and based it on lines of a more traditional jewelry box. It has two sliding trays and a music box.The small box in the bottom ( upper left corner) covers the movement.The body is Cherry with an antiqued Cherry stain.The accents are Purple Heart and Maple.The body is joined with dovetails and the lid has pinned breadboard ends. The finish is lacquer.
The far right picture is the front,a little too plain I think in hindsite. I should have put a lock or medallion on it to break up the expanse a little. Maybe on the next one.
The dimensions are: 13.25w X 7.25h X 7.75 d
OOPS! Do you see the flaw in my joinery? Mom still loves it anyway.
