My favorite way to make a unique jewelry box is to start with a partial concept and just see where it goes without any plans. With this box I began with the idea of doing a top that wasn't a solid board or flat panel. From there I came up with the idea of using a turned cylinder at one end with a secret compartment within it. Only once I had the whole top built did I really figure out what was going to go beneath it.

The jewelry box is built mainly from hard maple and walnut. The drawer fronts are made from a nice crotch figured piece of walnut, and the inset circle is a figured piece of cherry. Overall measurements are 22-1/2" long, 10-5/8" deep, and 8" high. Internally the drawers are 13-3/4" by 8-3/8", with the bottom two drawers 5/8" deep and the top drawer ranging from 1" to 2" of available height though the drawer itself is still 5/8" deep.

The secret compartment opens from the rear, and has a magnet hidden inside the drawer face. A small rod magnet is provided to open the compartment, but any piece of iron or steel will work. The compartment is internally 1-1/4" by 8-1/4".

If you would like to learn more about the construction of the jewelry box, I kept a photo-blog on my Facebook page here: http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=207762&id=93453310732
