I made two of these walnut jewelry cases and gave them away as Christmas presents—one each to my daughter and daughter-in-law. The design isn’t original—I pretty closely followed a design I found in Wood magazine (July-2009) with only a few minor modifications. It’s nearlly all 1/2” walnut—resawed from thicker stock—and uses simple rabbet & dado joinery. This was one of the most ambitious projects I’ve tried so far—and one of the main reasons I upgraded my table saw—the old one just wasn’t cutting it anymore. (Wow! I can’t believe I actually said that.) I was pretty pleased with how they both turned out—and their recipients were happy with them also.
