This is a modified version of a jewelry chest that appeared in the Oct 2005 issue of Wood Magazine. The client wanted a deeper space in the upper compartment to accompany large bracelets. She also chose to have it done in bocote and maple. Finished with 4 coats of tung oil and buffed with the Beall system.

Very nice! That would look good as a matching set with a larger hope/blanket chest also. Once again, very nice.

Bill, this has a classic look and is a beautiful choice of woods. The finish looks great. It looks like a nice combination of sizes of spaces. The bowed legs really add to the look.

A fine piece.The contrast between the two woods add to its beauty.
Well done.
