I made this jewelry chest for my daughter as a Christmas gift. The plans for this jewelry chest was featured in Woodsmith magazine Vol.33 / No. 197. The chest is made from oak. The top and base are painted oak. I hate painting any wood but I was pleased with the results. i used several coats of lacquer as a finish. All the drawers are lined. I deviated from their plans on the doors. They used bendable plywood and I glued up tapered oak strips. I had to make a curved jig to hold the glue-up. oh, I made the scratching post too but that is for our five cats :).

Dennis, the plans for this jewelry chest was featured in Woodsmith magazine Vol.33 / No. 197. I didn’t draw up any I just used the one in the magazine then made a few changes to suit me :)

Well done. Wile I’m not a big fan of Oak, this really works with the black accents. I agreee as well its hard to paint wood at times. Might what to try a dye or india black ink might show more of the grain…

Very nice!

Excellent! As soon as I saw your project, I recognized the design. It is on my “list of thing to make”. Also, I have to say, I love your John Adams quote.
