This jewelry box was my 5th in the Oregon design. A buddy from work asked me to make him one, and he really like the #3 I made in the past, so I decided to make this one with a little twist: Hidden drawer out of the back of the drawer! He also requested that I do a special engraving for him, which I told him this was my first try and it wouldn’t be too professional looking, and he was happy to be the first. I learned afterwards, that a small engraving tool was actually a really cool thing to have.. The bottom right of the bottom has my company name engraved “WEST COAST WOODS”. The handle is purple heart, while the rest is pine, douglas fir, and poplar. I’ll post the pictures on how I made this hidden drawer if anyone’s curious. Thanks for checking it out!

Thank you so much, both of you. And as promised, my photos of how I did the hidden drawer:

Cut the front and back off the drawer block like normal.

Take the front off and mark where the main drawer compartment will be cut out.

Tape the back side back onto the block, and leave the front face off. Then draw where the hidden drawer will be cut out. Make sure you cut the hidden drawer first if you follow my picture step by step! And after you do, then take off the back and cut the main compartment out with no front or back attached… Otherwise, you won’t have those two end pieces for the walls anymore.

Glue the front and back pieces back on… And just like any normal drawer, the hidden drawer you just cut out needs to have its front and back cut off, then cut out its main compartment.

Glue the hidden drawers front and back pieces back together, and wuala!

You now have a hidden drawer that comes out the back of your regular drawer :)
