Curved-Door Jewelry Chest
This project will test your woodworking skills and give you an opportunity to learn a few new techniques.
There aren’t many gifts that will put a smile on the face of the recipient like a hand-made jewelry chest. And since it’s such a personal gift that will last a lifetime, it will always remind the owner of the craftsmanship and thought that went into building it. For the bulk of the jewelry chest you’ll use pretty straightforward woodworking techniques. But it’s the curved doors that really grab your attention. And they’ll give you an opportunity to try out a special bending plywood to form the doors. If you’ve never attempted bending wood before, this project is a great chance to give it a try.

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
