Two identical jewelry boxes for family women folks. My first time building two of the same. design was mine with my wife’s input as to what features she thought would be appropriate.
Wood is Bubinga with Burl Maple Veneer top. Inside framing and drawer parts are curly maple.
Size: 16”W x 12”H x 10” D. Pull out for chains is on a drawer slide (wide, metal and very stable).
Finish is Wood Turners Clear Finish (water based), several coats with hard wax polish. Tried Danish Oil on a sample but the wood darkened too much for my taste.
Hardware is all English brass. Used wooden pegs (from Hobby Lobby) for chains. Used brass before but ladies preferred wood, not as harsh on jewelry. Pullout for chains has 2 sides with ‘catch’ trays on the bottom.
The boxes are rather large but having large storage was more important for women.
