The five-day Wood Whisperer Jewelry Box class is the perfect project for the upcoming holiday season. Looking to give that special someone a gift they’ll treasure forever? This could be the project for you.

Jewelry Box

The Wood Whisperer Jewelry Box offers challenges unique to the intermediate woodworker. From the through-dovetailed frames that make up the sides of the box to the sliding dovetail construction that constitutes the skeleton to the curved drawer fronts, this project hones your skills like few others.

And the best part,  you can include a hidden compartment.


Some of the skills learned in the Jewelry Box class are:

  • How to incorporate secret compartments into your woodworking projects
  • How to break down a complex project into easy-to-accomplish smaller steps
  • How to make through and sliding dovetails
  • Matching figure in wood to provide the best possible look for your project

Materials are not included in the class fee. Lumber for this project may be purchased through me or on your own and shipped to our shop at least four weeks prior to the class. Please contact us for pricing or a materials list (for registered students only).

Hardware for this project may be purchased through one of the vendors on the resources page.

Each student should supply his, or her, own:

  • Safety glasses and hearing protection
  • Combination or machinist square
  • Bevel gauge
  • Bench chisels
  • Carvers mallet
  • Dovetail saw
  • Marking gauge
  • Smooth plane or jack plane
  • Block plane
  • Tape measure or folding rule.

If you do not have the tools on the list, don’t panic, there are plenty of tools for your use in class.
