Pictured I thought Texas style was fitting for this Jewelry box due to it’s rustic appeal, there are other versions of this design floating around I just made this one my own, it consist of most everything that I’ve learned from fellow Lumberjocks all rolled up into one and once again another new bandsaw box design only you wouldn’t know the inner was a bandaw box, another hybrid, I’ve implemented a new feature into my bandsaw boxes instead of cutting out the front from the drawers I now use wooden panels or slabs for the draw fronts, the woods used in this project are Walnut and Spalted Hackberry. Both ends are book matched from the same board and the front is also book matched with grain flowing upward, the spalted hackberry I harvested with my chainsaw locally.
Build I started off with a glue up block, instead of running the boards vertical as I used to I ran these boards horizontally staggered, surface and edge glued, so that I could get a wider box, there’s no slicing the front or the back off you just simply cut your drawers out and only the rear slice of the draw is cut from the drawer not the front as the front slab becomes the front of the drawer, once everything was sanded I then round the fronts on the router table, the fronts are then glued to the front of the drawers, I then created two miter jointed fixtures for each side of the box and sliced them as you would a normal box and added the kerf to house the 1/4” panels on each side, I used wooden hinges on the back also made from walnut, both ends open up very smooth, I added three brass necklace hooks on each side, inside of the drawers I have two pull out trays one is a ring tray and also inside of the center drawer is a hidden drawer.
This box measures 14 1/2” x 11” x 5 1/2” it is finished in a single coat of tung oil, a single coat of non waxed shellac, two coats of satin finish wipe on poly and a final wipe with paste wax, all drawers are flocked.
I added 3 more pictures below to show the drawers out.
