    jewelry holder - FINISHED

    Well, so I wanted to make something for my niece. She asked for something to hold her jewelry. No doors, hangs on wall. Easy to use.

    It isn't quite done yet, needs a knob for the drawer, and of course some finish. Will be shellac and wax. It is made of maple, the sides are curly, but don't show up in these images.

    Overall, golden rectangle, about 16" tall, 10" wide, just over 2" deep.

    Tiniest dovetails I've made. The drawer is only 1 3/8" tall.

    Very nice! I'm sure the curly will pop right out once the finish is applied. Looking forward to seeing it then!

    Good job I'm sure she'll be happy to use it for years and years. You just made a heirloom piece.
    Best regards,
    Toni

    Larry, that's not my floor. It's my kitchen table.
