I still had some cherry wood from the corner cabinet that I made for my daughter so I made a jewelry chest out of some of it. I think it turned out OK.
Not perfect but maybe the next one will be.
I hope you enjoy.

Drawers, open top and hanging about covers it all. It is elegant with the wood combinations. If I could conquer making drawers, I’d attempt it.

We all make mistakes? That gives it character. Great execution. I’m sure she thought it was perfect. It is.

Hey Len,
A very nice piece. Curved drawer fronts too. That’s a looker.

I love cherry and walnut combos. It looks great.

I think you should be very proud of this one! It looks perfect to me. And I really like the design and the curved drawer fronts.

Thanks for all the nice complements. It means a lot coming from expert wood workers!
You should be able to find more photos and plans at
However I did not make the drawer fronts as they suggest but cut them with my band saw and then sanded it on my belt sander. I was surprised how well that worked. Cherry wood is really nice to work with not as hard as ash or maple.
I had done one before when I bend the fronts and that also worked well. I tried as they suggest with a router and a 2 in. bit but that did not work for me.

This is beautiful. You did a fantastic job on this. perfect. As for mistakes, the more projects I do the more I realize that the only one who sees them is me. Others don’t see them and I see none of them here! Also like the wooden flower in pic 2. Did you make this? love to see a post.
