Completed Jewelry Box

I recently completed solid cherry jewelry box for a very special girl’s 5th birthday. The box is smaller version of my toolbox that I built earlier this year and is based on that design.

I used the toolbox project as the basis for my project and modified some of the proportions and layout details to fit the stock I had on hand and to include a single drawer rather than a double drawer design.

The finished box is around 16″w x 20″L x 7″H and includes a single drawer and a hinged top.

The drawer is dovetailed with poplar and includes a custom made pull.

The project took just over 4 days from start to finish. It was nicely received by its new owner. I am hopeful to make this into a retail design that can be sold locally River’s Mist Gallery in Stevensville, Montana and possible something that could be shipped across country if needed without costing a fortune.

I have include some build photos for those interested. I hope you like the overall design.
