When my friend Amanda first saw the Walnut jewelry chest, she asked me to build her one for her birthday. This is what I designed. Very similar to the walnut chest, but slightly bigger and taller, and with an open top. This time, I used biscuit joinery to attach the sides to the top and bottom, and also to attach the back, and the front upper mahogany piece. The drawers are constructed with a drawer lock bit, and a dado for the plywood bottom. Once again, I used a figured piece of maple, and cut the drawer fronts out of one piece to match the color, and grain. I lined the drawers with felt, and tray. I also cut some foam into ring holders. I am very proud of my little jewelry chests!!
