This is another of the drawings I did while sitting in my recliner, turning it into a finished jewelry box.
The “flames” are yellowheart and redheart, with redheart flame handles throughout. The “candles” are reclaimed oak and one maple candle, with a burl raw edged walnut base. Those tiny drawers are tough to make, and I got the cut in the top of my thumb from the bandsaw to prove it!
Red felt in the big drawers, of course.
It is about 12” long, and the tallest candle is about 8” high. Ten drawers in all.
The look is rustic on purpose.
Thanks for lookin, and copy it if you want to. Make a great gift for a little girl who loves Harry Potter, I think!!

Great looking box set Paul.. Allot of thought must have went into that one. I can see how you did the flames, but the log pieces I’m not sure. How did you cut the drawers out of the logs like that?

Larry:
Actually, I didn’t even lathe out the logs, I was able to cut the squares into a relative circle with my big bandsaw. Then I sanded them round on a stationary belt sander.
To cut out the drawers, I drew an elliptical line on the top of each round log, forming a rounded back. Then I cut that off, and it gave me a way to cut out the drawers. The hard part was keeping the circle steady as I cut out the straight lines for the drawers. I used a fence in some cases to steady it, but as I went around every corner, I had to keep the back of the circle even to the table on the saw. Couple of little mistakes, but it came out OK.
Thanks for lookin!

Cool design and great execution. The drawers cut into the rounds are very unique. And love the flames! I can’t find any of your entry cuts and I looked hard!
