Inspired in part by Frank Lloyd Wright's clever use of architectural cantilevers, this suspended jewelry box utilizes deceptively simple dadoes and rabbets for joinery. To open the drawer, simply push the opposite end through the drawer box.

Overall dimensions: 4" wide x 8" long x 4" high.

Nice box

Rating:
Pros:

Cons:
  • Cutting accurate bevels on thin pieces
I am a relative novice, woodworking for only a couple years, and got these plans to build a keepsake box for my son's girlfriend. I used scraps of maple and some sort of contrasting fruitwood (I think) I had lying around. It was done over 3 days (I work outside and am dependent on weather) and she really liked it. The only change I made was to divide the inside into 2 sections rather than 3.
