My wife has started collecting jewelry pins, so I volunteered to make a chest for them.

I am pretty much a novice at woodworking, but starting with beautiful curly cherry (case) and tiger maple (drawers) means you almost cant go wrong.

Very nice – good choice of materials and the dovetail splines really finish it off nicely.

Any woman would be pleased with that lovely box – and even more so as you made it specially for her collection.

Acer,

The box is beautiful! Not only is the wood gorgeous, but the craftsmanship is first-rate! Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful!! You can’t go wrong, but an ugly design can make it hard to look at. Yours does NOT have that problem!!
