This is the Jewellery Box I built for my wife for Christmas. The case is cherry the legs and bottom rail are walnut the door frame is tiger maple with the centre panel being lacewood. The drawers contain half blind hand cut dovetails, the fronts are lacewood and the pull is walnut. The earing holder rides in a stopped sliding dovetail and the necklace holder is a double sliding dovetail with built in stops so it cannot come all the way out. The necklace holder also has a segmented circle but I do not have a lathe so I chucked it in the drill on a ¼” bolt and shaped it on the stationary belt sander while it was spinning. The legs are connected to the bottom rail and the case with floating tenons. The case is mitered and then I added the dovetail maple splines. Infulances have been taken from several projects posted here in LJ’s which I feel is one of the best woodworking sites on the Net.
I have included some work in progress and in use pictures below, thanks for looking
