Default Mahogany Jewelery Box

This is a long term project I started as a Christmas gift for the wife's G/F. The mahogany is all recycled and came to me free for hauling it away. I did a quick search on Google for ideas and made some changes to make this one a bit special. As you will notice I used 3 different kinds of hinges, so the doors would not conflict with each other and hit the brass knobs for the side compartments when opened wide. So far it has all worked out very well and will be done well in advance of this Christmas to come. The drawer fronts are all 1/8" Rosewood Veneer. The hardware except for the front door scissor hinges, came from Lee Valley. The final finish will be my preferred Teak Oil. The drawers will be lined with craft felt; colour yet to be decided. I did use a drawer lock miter bit to make the joints fit tight and square on these small drawers (4"X 8" X 1 1/4" deep). The jewellery box measures 16" H by 14" W by 6.5" D. I made a divot (with my table mount router and a pin arm router attachment) on the underside of the lid for a small mirror. Final sanding done with 240 grit. The last photo is the sample I looked at for inspiration for this project. I am always open to suggestions and comments as well as questions. No one is too old to learn some new tricks.

OMG,Reg, what a nice job. That is twice as HD as the pictured one. full 3/4" wood throughout. A lot more work too with the necklace racks on the sides instead of inside the doors. And a lot more drawer space,and the top that lifts too with added tray space. Woman can never have enough space for their jewelry, and they like the mirror handy like that while they get all dolled up. Good job, she ought to be especially pleased.

Hey Dan! I already made a jewellery box of Rosewood for my Wife. That's what got me into this project for her best friend. If you check my other uploads you will find a "Rosewood Jewellery Box"
