Curvy Jewelry Box

This unique project could arguably be considered more beautiful than anything that could be put in its drawers.

This is a jewelry box that I finished just in time for my daughters birthday. The case is curly maple. I popped the grain with amber dye, sanded back to reveal the long grain.

The front door and the drawer fronts were cut from a piece of Indonesian Rosewood that I book-matched.

The legs and pulls are also rosewood. The standoffs for the legs are walnut.

The finish is home-brewed Maloof oil. I applied Butcher’s wax a couple of weeks after the oil cured.

The drawers are all lined with red felt and have maple dividers. - Al Bibbero; Boulder, CO
