400 Wood Boxes - Gaia Jewelry Chest
In 2004 Lark Books selected the Gaia Jewelry Chest for publication in their book "400 Wood Boxes".
This jewelry box was originally designed in 1999 as a gift to my wife. Measuring 7-1/8" wide x 7-1/8" deep x 12-3/8" high the exterior is crafted of Curly Moave veneer inlaid with solid mahogany beading. The 5 interior drawers were sculpted from solid Sapele joined together with sliding dovetails. The doors open and close by means of precision inlaid SOSS hinges.
