The body of the box is all one glued up piece with no cuts connecting the drawers. Doing this there is much less seasonal movement of the wood. Meaning tighter tolerances. 

  I used welding rods for part of the handles. the red one is ash and the drawer fronts are pecan or mesquite, yep, made four boxes about four years ago and done forgot what I used!!red scroll saw jewelry box.jpgjewely boxes with drawes out 003.JPGjewely boxes with drawes out 005.JPGSC jewelry box 003.JPGSC jewelry box 001.JPGpieces for the body of a scroll box.jpg

 Gluing this many pieces in perfectly alignment is sort of a chore. For that I use 4 -1/8, or 3/16" dowels in all the pieces includings this many pieces for each and every drawer. And I have to keep each set of holes in different areas of each piece. Kinda like a night mare keeping  all pieces where they will go before the gluing starts.

  I don't glue the back piece of the body on until the inside is sanded. I glue all the pieces of the drawers together except the front and the back pieces so I can cut the cavity of the drawer out and get sanded then I glue the two pieces, front and back, of each drawer.original (1) heart box ready for the sale.jpg
