I had decided it was time to surprise Blondie with something for a change. There have been a lot of projects that left the shop and went to other customers or friends and family as gifts. She had noticed this Jewelry Box while reading Wood Magazine Dec/Jan 2009/2010 addition and Loved it!
( Yes she reads my wood magazines…. LOL ).....
I decided to use some of the Blue Oak & Cherry I have in the shop. The Blue Oak comes from Rob at, “Tule Peak Timber” here in Southern California. I used maple for the drawers. I tried a new technique for me, flocking the drawers which went well. I do have one small touch up on pic #5 were the pinner scrapped a small part while gluing and attaching the drawer fronts.
I used 8 coats of Enduro Wated Based Finish by General Finishes, sanding with 600 in between.
The magazine says build it in a weekend. Hmmmmm not sure how long their weekends are. They must be like the Chefs on TV & have everything processed and cut ready for them. While I’m sure I could do the next one quicker still not convinced a weekend it long enough “>)
She Loves it which is what counts..
Hope you like it and thx for looking, all comments and advice for improving are welcome
