I am making 5 of these stand-up jewelry boxes. The one on the left is done. I can’t disclose the woods in it until it gets to someone. The other is soft maple frame work and cherry burl drawers with cherry insets. Cherry legs. There is a lot of work in these. Cherry is finished but waiting for same handles. I have a persimmon with olive drawer fronts- walnut with figured walnut drawers and insets and a hard maple with spalted maple drawers and curly maple insets. They are all pretty much finished. Labor intensive but fun. Mortise and tennon framework- bridal joint doors and lids and dovetailed drawers. Enjoy!!!

Great looking boxes. I think the recipients will be really thrilled with these.

Thanks everyone- boxes are fun- you get to use very special pieces of wood.
