I haven’t been posting much but I do check in periodically.
Here is one of the reasons I’m not posting much… too busy designing and building a few new items like this one.
This is a cantilevered jewelry box made of maple and walnut. It measures about 15 inches long and about 7 inches high. There are 3 drawers of varying sizes that cant from the 2 walnut braces. It was a bear to design and build (saw something like this on the web but not exactly the same – I put my own touches on it). Everything had to be exactly square and I needed a way to open the drawers. I just routed out a 1/8 in. groove in the drawer front and it is nice and easy to open all the drawers. The drawers had to fit nice and tight but not too tight and I ended up putting the back of the boxes on last. I also should have finished the pieces first and then assembled but why make it easy!! I will be flocking the insides as soon as I get some time.
