Nice Enough For Jewelry Sharp Enough For Chisels

When I set out to build this case, I intended to use it to protect some of my favorite chisels. But as soon as I finished it, Cheryl walked into the shop and hinted that it was "too nice for those cruddy old chisels. But wouldn't it make a terrific jewelry case?" Then Janet (Steve's wife) suggested, "If it were just a little bigger, it would be perfect for silverware."

I should have known better.

As for the design, I wanted this case to have a slightly contemporary look — sort of a straight-forward, functional appearance but with rounded edges to soften it just a bit.

I also wanted it to "fit in" no matter what the surroundings. So, I chose rather traditional-looking woods: walnut for the frames and red gum for the panels.
