Stacking Jewelry Box

   I’m not sure where I came up with the idea for this jewelry box, but it turned out extremely well and it was a fun project to build.  The box is made of poplar and its overall measurements are 10” wide by 6” tall by 6” deep.  The individual stackable compartments have slightly different heights varying between 1.5” and 2”.

   Each of the three compartments and the lid are held in place using wooden “keys” that protrude from the section beneath it.  These wooden keys prevent the boxes from shifting side-to-side or front-to-back while they are stacked.  The sections can only be separated by being lifted straight up.

   The front of the box has a “ring of roses” design burned into it, and the front edge of the lid has a “vine of hearts” burned into it as well.

   Each compartment is lined on the bottom with red felt to protect its contents.  The box is finished, inside and out, with a Honey Maple gel stain and a clear polyurethane protective finish.

   I was extremely pleased with the way this jewelry box turned out.  I hope you like it too.

   There are some interesting aspects to how this box was made.  You can read about it, and see step-by-step photos, by going to the next page.
