This jewelry box is made from mahogany,african Blackwood, and figured maple. If i was to build it again i would enclose the sides. But hey, live and learn!

Sweet! Great combo of woods and the ebony accents are perfect!
Couldn’t you still enclose the sides? I think I’ll try to make something like this.

Thanks for the comments! Unfortunately its to late to enclose it without major surgery. The problem with the open sides is the dust factor. They sure sounded like a good idea at the time!

I like that a lot. The woods work very well together.

What are the approximate dimensions?

Thanks for posting.

It looks good as is, but I can see the dust issue over time. I also think the wood combination is nice.

I like the design…especially the open sides. Is the dust problem dust on the box itself or dust on the contents of the drawers? For dust in the drawers you could always take a soft cloth and lay over the top of the contents or make thin lids to cover it.

I like it open, very architectural and shows the contrasting woods to good effect. But I’m kinda of like Pigpen from Charlie Brown, with a perpetual dust cloud around me/ I probably wouldn’t notice a difference… ;)

I like the grain continuity across the shelves, and the joinery (or is it inlay?) detail on the top.
Fine work.
