Woods used: Tiger maple, bubinga
Finish: Oil/Varnish Blend with Shellac Sealer Coat

The doors of this jewelry box are hung on classic knife hinges and swing open to reveal four unique drawers. The brass hardware sits in a circular recess which allows the doors to close flush against the drawer fronts. The dovetailed drawers slide smoothly on wood slides.

You really “popped” the maple on this one. That look is great. Finish looks good (of course, silly me). The three dovetails really make the drawers, nice and simple but very effective. The relief for the knobs is unique, adds to the overall look. Another winner!!!

I saw this project on your website a few weeks ago and admired the workmanship. I have been reading Krenov’s writings lately, and have been thinking through a project similar to yours with a base under it like Krenov made famous. I had thought I would do something with two doors and inside have a couple of shelves, but I like your drawer concept better.

I can’t watch your videos over the internet, as I live out in the sticks and have to use our only phone line for internet time on dial-up service (ugh!). Maybe someday I can upgrade to Satellite internet, and then I could watch your show.

Thanks for posting,
Mark

the drawers are a wonderful surprise and the overall piece is stunning (has that word been used already??)

Mark D. the videos are 10+. There is a lot of information stuffed into each episode, and it is presented in a way that even I understand!! (thank you thank you). Of course, I have to mention the entertainment value as well- puts a smile on my face very time.

Marc – thanks for sharing this exceptional piece. I just love the design. The choice of wood is perfect.

I’ve had many comments on the Australian wood I use in my boxes, but I would love to have some of the woods you guys have in the US. This is box with a real wow factor.

Marc,
Really great work. I love the marquetry and of course the maple itself is gorgeous. How did you do the banding channel? Router and chisel and nerves of steel?

Thanks Doug. The banding channel was done the easy way. Its actually not an inlay. Its part of the edgebanding on the plywood door. pretty sneaky eh? :)
