Making a jewelry chest.

My curly maple jewelry chests are far enough along now to show more than a box full of loose parts. Assembly and the fitting of drawers and doors is now complete including magnetic catches on the side doors. A chest like this is as complex as most of the large pieces of furniture I've made, so that explains why in bringing it to this stage it languished in my shop for almost a decade. I was busy with other things. I was at the point of either throwing all my earlier work away, or putting in the effort to complete them (there are two).

I've still a lot to do on them before the finish is applied.

Make, fix and create...
