A few years back I had promised my significant other a unique jewelry box. As she often says, “you can never build something simple”. I had to wait until I found the right woods that spoke to me. The larger box is hers and I think she is pleased with the results of her long wait. The other box I built for my best friend’s daughter’s graduation, after all I was responsible for introducing him to his future wife.The larger box is made from a single piece of highly figured walnut with Birdseye maple drawer pulls and spalted maple drawers. The second box is also from a single piece of walnut with Birdseye maple. The front legs are a tapered mirrored pattern of downward cascading lines that remind me of the Chinese painting stylization of very vertical descending mountains. The photo doesn’t really capture this detail.
