    Lingerie and Jewelry chest

    I recently completed this lingerie and jewelry chest. There are 10 drawers of graduated sizes (one somewhat hidden), with the walnut drawer fronts covered with a crotch veneer. Shop made handles are in the center to not interrupt the grain pattern.



    There are no panels between drawers to take away space (except one cross brace in the middle). The drawer sides are solid hard maple, with half blind dovetails to the walnut fronts.



    The top drawers are intended for jewelry storage, and are lined with felt. Each of these three drawers includes sliding trays with wooden dividers to allow jewelry to be sorted in varying size spaces, and to give access to the storage areas under the trays.

    The top three drawers and the hidden drawer can be latched closed with a discrete knob on the back of the cabinet. Certainly it isn't a burglar-proof storage for the jewelry, but can keep cleaning people and nosy friends at a party from playing here. A hasp allows the drawers to be locked with a small padlock, if you have shown the secret lock to too many of your friends.



    The top is four-way bookmatched walnut burl, finished and waxed "ooh so smooth" - everyone who has seen it loves to run their hand over the surface
