This was a Christmas present for my granddaughter Kailey. Her favorite color is purple and she has a lot of long necklaces that kept getting tangled in jewelry box drawers. The curvature in the two doors were created by forming my own plywood by laminating 1/8” thick poplar veneer together with quilted maple for the top laminate. The quilted maple was died purple in a slightly starburst pattern using red and blue analine dies. The insides are a walnut veneer with the partitions and hangers made of purple heart. In the center is a set of bandsaw box drawers made of purple heart. I put hooks along the top, bottom, and middle so that necklasses up to 26” long can be hung by starting with a bottom upsidedown hook and then wrapping over one of the top hooks.
