Daughter requested a jewelry box incorporating some Spalted Pecan from family home place. Other woods are Mahogany, White Oak, and Curly Maple. I took some inspiration from other posts on this site including using v-notch router bit on drawers and inside case sides and gluing in square (maple) dowels to case sides. I was very pleased with how smooth the drawers slide with a nice tight fit. I also like how the flush fit of the top appears to frame Nature’s artwork.

Thanks for viewing.

Really beautiful woods! I like the v-groove idea for the drawer slides. I’m sure your daughter will treasure this, especially with the special piece of family history. Very nice work!!

Superb!
The wood combinations and that excellent top are very cool.

it’s all so nice I can’t find any one thing to compliment, so it’s all or nothing

Beautiful

I love how the pulls are along the bottom of the drawers. I wouldn’t have thought to do that. That’s a nice touch.

Have your say...
