I had so much fun with the tigerwood chest that I thought it would be a challenge to make another one in spalted maple. I wasn’t wrong, making raised panels, rails, and stiles out of this wood was pretty intense. However, I do think it turned out Ok.

That’s a great looking box. I like the vertical drawer element on the face – breaks it up and makes the piece more unique. It is something that is definitely not available at the usual furniture stores. A fine understated home for pretty jewelry that will no doubt pull two looks from anyone who sees it. Very well done. – Abe

I think this is the understatement of the month. Words can not describe the beauty of the project especially the spalted maple, I love it!
Did you have a plan and would it be available?

I sort of had a plan, but most of it was done on the fly.

Great chest, very nicely done. I love spalted maple, you did a great job of making the patterns of the wood flow.

Very excellent piece. What size is it? I notice you have metal drawer slides and they are usually not small.
