Round Jewelry Box

Rotating drawers for holding treasures

Unlike so many wooden boxes that are designed around squares or rectangles, this elegant walnut box with its stack of painted drawers is based on a circle. And rather than having the drawers slide out of their openings, these pivot to reveal their contents. The build presents a number of challenges in the shop: The drawer sides are bent laminations made from veneer, fastened to the fronts using special dowels (see Buyer’s Guide, p. 60). The drawer fronts are bandsawn to shape and then lightly carved before finishing with milk paint. (For more on this versatile colorant, see p. 26. And the box walls are made from a series of staves which fit into grooves routed into the top and bottom with the help of a router trammel. In all, this is a fun build with some good technical hurdles to overcome.
