I made this jewelry chest for my new grand daughter, Scarlett, who I will hopefully meet for the first time in January. Bubinga is a great wood to work with as it has an impressive grain and machines very well. I used the combination of a few different chest designs to put this one together. Hope she fills it with a lifetime of treasure.

A beautiful heirloom! I love the design and your wood selection. I’ll have to put a jewelry chest on my list for my granddaughters too!

That is really nice, and it looks like it was finished with several coats of love!
An heirloom to be sure.
