This Jewel Case is constructed using Black Walnut and White Rock Elm. I designed this case to give room for an abundance of hanging jewelery. There are also two small shelves for watches and hard bracelets. The drawer opens up to reveal trays for rings galore, and the top tray slides off and out of the way to make it easy to find the perfect ring. The entire piece, apart from the back panel is made of hardwoods from MN. It was assembled using finger joints to give it an elegant contrast at the intersections of the light colored elm and the beautiful black walnut. The black walnut in the main door is butterfly cut, and the grain is book-matched to give it a unique handmade feeling. The door stays closed thanks to four very tiny, but strong rare-earth magnets hidden in the door and in the case that attract each another. The door and drawer pulls are handmade from three pieces, the main pull being Teak. This piece can either sit atop a table or be hung on a wall, and would look really great with a mirror hanging above the drawer.
