This is a new jewelry box that I made for my wife. No occassion. Just because I think everyone who does woodworking has too! I got the idea from this project.
I made mine a little smaller. The dimemsions given were a little too big for my application. This one is built from maple and walnut. The two side “doors” swing out and have hooks for hanging necklaces. My wife currently has them hanging all over the place! I also added some mahogany inlay on the interior sides.
There are three drawers on guide rails. The top one is fake. The space behind it is open and used by the lift. I assembled the drawers using box joints. These are made from poplar and walnut since I didn’t have enough maple. I just needed an offset color. I made all of the “grids” from some 1/8” pieces I bought from eBay. Each drawer has an additional small box that slides across for more storage. The grid is removable in each box in case she just wants the whole area for stuff. It’s pretty heavy since the whole thing is all solid wood. I hope she likes it. I enjoy making things for her since she lets my buy tools! I think it came out pretty good.
