I am more actively posting on Instagram lately so if you want more frequent posts, go find me there - @thisweekinwood.
In addition to installing and fitting the drawers into the main part of the Jewelry Box, I've created the dividers for each drawer based on feedback from the future user (who still complains that the whole box is too big).
Next, I began working on the lid. I dovetailed the top sides and created a raised panel. The sides are cherry like the main box and the raised panel is figured maple like the drawer fronts.
After creating and fitting the lid, I needed some hinges. I decided on some small Brusso Hardware hinges. Fitting them was simple requiring mortises for each of the hinges and a little cutout at the back of the hinge for movement/opening.
My wife decided that the top will be for earrings and regular rings so it's just going to have ring inserts and no dividers. For the inside of the lid, I need to find some hooks and a method for containing necklesses that will hang from the hooks.
