This is the first of a series of jewellry boxes based on a sort-of made up sci-fi mythical place called Enndorr (apologies to anyone who already uses the name – it just sounded cool!). They will basically be boxes using a similar design to this one only with different woods.
This particular design was commissioned by an acquaintance of my wife’s (and was just picked up 1/2 hour ago) and is made of Arbutus for the basic carcass, Birds-eye Maple for the “moon” and drawer fronts, Arbutus for the necklace frames and fir and maple for the drawers and their own ‘mini-box’. The feet are of Rosewood and do not run all the way from side to side but extend in only about 6” from the outside edge.
Yes, Paul, I managed to get the doors to close properly! The next one, which I am already working on, utilizes Black Walnut, Maple (plain and Curly) and Spalted Alder! Sounds like a wierd combo but seems to look good when you put the woods together!
