This is one of two jewelry boxes I am making for Christmas presents. My brother asked me to make this one for his daughter. She makes necklaces and wanted a jewelry box just devoted for them. This is nothing very fancy but it is practical and should be a heirloom that can be passed on to her daughter. Don’t you box masters like Roger Bean, Patron or Randy laugh at my box. We all have to start some where. The only problem with it, it is quite heavy (23 lbs). It is only 12” X 12” X 16” and is mostly made of solid red oak. The box back and drawer bottoms are 1/4” red oak plywood. Hardware is all solid brass and I used small magnetic catches for the doors. The box is stained with Min Wax Golden Oak stain, 3 coats of General Arm-R-Seal Oil & Urethane top coat satin and 2 coats of paste wax applied with #0000 steel wool. Thanks for looking.
