I have intermediate skills and equipment, and would like to make a
jewelry armoire for my beloved wife. The standard Google fare doesn't
do it for me.
Could someone provide a link or share a plan where I could get some
I appreciate any help and hope my request is within the parameters of
As Nailshooter can attest, my wife keeps rolls of quarters in it too. LOL
Thank you BTY. I got my inspiration from
I charged about $800 for the one I sold. Notice the pricing on the ones at
the above link?
Yes, the prices are definitely higher than one might at first guess. But
I don't doubt that you earned the entire $800. As for the one you made
your wife, I'm sure she considers it priceless.
On a related note, I want to make my wife a kitchen table (red oak seems
readily available, but we have maple cabinets, so I haven't really
decided that part yet). I was curious of an effective way to inlay a
monogram (or something like that) to make it personal, but I am
concerned about whatever I do "wearing-well" over time. Any thoughts out
there? No doubt, even with a table by itself, I'm already in up to my
neck... And as Larry would point out, I still have lights to hang...
Thank you, so did I. The others are acutally built by an old tool box
company that is still building wooden tool boxes. I actually got to see a
"tool box" make by that company at a local Woodcraft store, I hope their
jewelery boxes looked better.
Of course it is, Gary. No worries!
One of our old Wreck members is Doug Stowe, back in my old stompin'
grounds, arKansas. He has written a passel o' books 'bout boxes, boy.
Goto www.amazon.com and key in "boxes stowe" for 18 hits. Find what
you want, and see if they're in your local library, while your order
is processing. He covers the full gamut of styles, with and without
inlay. Some have nice jewelry box plans inside. Highly recommended.
Check the tables of content online. Most books have previews @ Amazon.
The art of life lies in a constant readjustment to our surroundings.
