This build is a gift for a friend who is retiring. It is made from scrap wood and left over finishes, so the only things I had to purchase were the moulding, hinges and “bling”.
Used Georgia’s Jewelry Box plan, with these mods: made it a little longer with no overhangs; added stop moulding trim around the top and bottom; added some lattice squares for “feet;” added a small sliding tray in aromatic cedar (1/4” cedar closet lining for the tray, stop moulding for the rails), and some self-adhesive rhinestone flourishes (found these at Michaels).
This would be an afternoon build. The finish took longer than the build - probably 2 or 3 hrs (filling, sanding, painting, and attaching the hinges and “bling”). It took me much longer to decide how to decorate it, than it did to actually build it ;)
Some squares of sticky-back felt were also added to the bottoms of the feet.
I’m very pleased to say that this gift was a big hit!
