This is a project I just finished for my wife. She has been asking fo something to store her earings. I buiilt her a rack for them many years ago but it is full (too many ear rings?). This box is rose wood with 3 racks inside for the ear rings made of some scrap birds eye maple. It works quite well and she likes it.

Wow, all I can say is this is just beautiful!!!!
Your wood choice is perfect, one of my favorite woods to work with.
What a beautiful design with the unique but gorgeous lift. You did a wonderful job on this. One of my favorites for sure and might like to use your concept if you don’t mind…... Just fantastic !

I really like that box. The grasping handles on the racks are a sweet touch, too.
