Jewelry Box #B-IC1
Stunning and unique!  This Art Deco design is accentuated with angled legs and arching tops.  Various wood combinations are shown; all have a vivid tiger maple front.  Have your monogram emblazoned in the stained glass top or have me create any design you desire.  The interior of the case is lit with LED's which cast a subtle glow beneath the stained glass.  There's ample, velvet-lined storage under the lid and in the drawer.  The drawer operates smoothly on full-extension, ball-bearing slides which allow complete access to the rear of the drawer.  Strong, box-joint drawer construction as well as solid brass hinges on the lid will provide a lifetime of service.  At 20"w x 18"d x 10"h, it's big enough to hold a lot of jewelry, but you can always customize your order to add a few more drawers so your collection has room to grow.

Necklace Case #B-NH1
Do you have some jewelry that needs some organizing?  This client had a lot of necklaces laying in a drawer getting all knotted up.  Hanging them was the solution, but she didn't want them out in the open.  There was a void in her closet wall where I could recess this case and maximize her storage capacity.  It has 4 pull-out panels which hold a total of 68 necklaces on individual stainless steel hooks.  Plus there's 2 drawers for bracelets or watches.  The panels/drawers feature over-extension, ball bearing drawer slides for smooth operation and easy access to the entire panel/drawer.  They pull all the way out.  Everything is lined with padded crushed velvet.  The piece is made from birch wood stained to match the existing decor.  It measures 12"w x 25"h x 11"d.  And by the way, I made those cool, floating, wrap-around shelves, too!

Pistol Case #B-HL1
The design of this box is particularly versatile.  The interior can be customized exactly how you wish.  If your needs change at a later date, the interior dividers can be replaced easily without having to disassemble the entire box.  The box's striking appearance is due to the beautiful woods selected.  The top is redwood lace burl; the sides are Bolivian rosewood, and the accents are padauk.  The piece was painstakingly hand-rubbed to a rich, high-gloss finish.  The interior birch dividers are set off by an elegant, padded, burgundy crushed velvet lining.  The client's monogram is of quilted maple inlayed into a walnut field.  This piece measures 16"w x 11"d x 3"h and perfectly accommodates two 9mm Glock pistols and four extra magazines.  A lock can be provided for a slight up-charge, or try a glass top instead to display your items.  Solid brass hinges will provide a lifetime of service.

Jewelry Box #B-HH1
Wow!  Art Deco styling with luxurious, high-end materials: a quilted maple top with abalone inlay, mahogany sides, maple legs, Macassar ebony banding, and bright chrome knurled knobs.  Solid brass hinges will provide a lifetime of service.  The high-gloss finish is accomplished by sanding though nine grits of sandpaper by hand.  It's more work, but the quality of the luster speaks for itself.  The interior is appointed with padded crushed velvet on the bottom and padded leather on the underside of the lid.  The unpartitioned interior will allow storage for jewelry, wine accessories, cigars, anything.  Or have dividers added for a customized presentation.  At 15"w x 11"d x 6"h, it would make a perfect centerpiece for any room.

Individual Ring Box #B-MF1
If you have a special treasure like an engagement ring, don't hand it off in that cheap plastic box they give you at the jewelry store.  Kick the presentation up a notch.  This small box was made from tiger maple with a figured redwood top.  The interior is foam with a velvet covering, very elegant.  It's 3" x 3" x 2 1/2"h

This is the least expensive box I can make.  I keep costs low by using leftover wood and no hardware (the lid is friction fit).  You'll get a nice box, but you'll need to browse my scrap pile to see what's available.

Sold $40

Atari Organizer #B-OH1
Classic video games are a pretty big deal.  The Atari 2600 came out in the late 70's, and it is surprising that these still work.  This organizer is made from walnut with quilted maple handles and an Atari logo inlaid into the front medallion.  Everything is held perfectly in subdivided compartments from the game cartridges, to the paddles and joysticks, even space for the cables.  When you're ready to play, just pull it out to your sofa and uncoil the cable (sorry, no wireless back in the day).

Atari aside, I can subdivide a box or tray to precisely fit anything you want.  Everything has a spot and you can take inventory at a glance.
