Carly's Jewelry Box


Quartersawn White Oak and Spalted Silver Maple


This is my first official attempt at building an actual jewelry chest.  I made this for my beautiful daughter for Christmas 2011.


Completed box assembly with drawers and lid "mocked up."

Edge banding on lid and molding piece below drawers....

1/8" brass rod used to pin the corners and spalted maple blanks for drawer pulls...

View of the spalted maple lid with clear stain on it (Watco black walnut stain on the oak)

Close up of completed drawer pull, also pinned on with brass rod...

A couple shots of the wonderful medullary flaking in the quartersawn oak...

Gettin' a bit better at velvet linings but still need much practice...

Completed project came out pretty fair overall...

Overall, another project that I'm very pleased with, given my novice status.
