Another Custom Jewelry Chest

I haven’t posted anything for a while. I built this jewelry chest to the specifications of a client. This chest looks like it has 8 drawers but it only has 7 drawers. The bottom drawer is double deep and has a faux break so it looks continuous with 8 drawers.

The primary woods are Shedua and Wenge with drawers being Hard Maple. Drawer #1 (top) has two open areas with ring rolls in the middle. Drawers #2 – #5 have have dividers that are configurable, they have 80 compartments per drawer if left as is. Drawers #6 & #7 have friction dividers, the dividers slide in a slot on the front and back and are held in place with simple friction.

Wow what a nice piece! Great lines and hard to go wrong with Wenge. ( David Marks ) would be proud. Love the lines on this and locking dadoes for the drawers is nice as well. I love using them.

Gorgeous combination of woods and design.
I like what you did on the “7th/8th” drawer , and thank you for the open drawer pictures.
Your joinery looks awesome with the contrasting woods : )

Very cool, it’s gorgeous. I like everything about it. The design, the contrasting wood, the drawer details…everything. Got me inspired to do something with a chunk of wenge I’ve had laying around for a few years, thanks for posting!
