This is a jewelry box I built for my girl Friend for Valentines Day.
She loved it. This was a learning experience to say the least. The design wasn’t mine
I saw it here on LJ and all I had to go one was a few pictures and a measurement of
202010.
I can’t remember who posted it , It is made from oak, and stained with a dark stain by can’t remember who
Being the label has been go for some time. And minwax poly over it.

Great build! And the drawer pulls may eventually grow on me :)

The drawers were lined with a felt type fabric from the fabric store. I glued it with plain old Elmer’s school glue
