As the title say’s I made this for my wife for Christmas, it was a complete surprise for her. Made entirely of Ambrosia Maple. Three drawers on the bottom, top open’s for more storage. Both sides open for necklace storage. Flocking has since been added to the drawers, let her pick the color.

That looks like a great gift John. I have never seen that type of wood for sale in my neck of the woods.
Are the plans for that box available….......................

Thanks for all of the positive comments. I do not have a plan for this, it was a custom build.

The dimensions are 20”h x 20” w x 10” d

I also forgot to mention that this lumber was at a local saw mill ready to be made into pallets. What a shame that would have been.
