I based this design roughly on another one I found here but made mine hourglass rather than barrel shaped. I had bought a half inch cherry board without any idea of what I would do with it but the grain was just too nice to pass up. This became my drawer fronts. Other woods are black walnut and maple. I like the design but not satisfied with the execution. Drawers are too deep, 3 inches, for a jewelry case. instead of 3/4 inch top and sides 5/8 or 1/2 would have been better. The pulls were made to blend in with the fronts and not stand out but there must be a better way. i used a polyurethane finish and found it hard to polish the final coats. I will try another finish next time, as soon as I have another board good enough for the drawer fronts.
