Storing cufflinks, watches, etc...

post #1 of 12

So basically men's jewelry boxes. What does everyone use? I was thinking about getting a couple of cigar boxes and using them, but I don't feel like doing a craft project by myself, and the ones I saw were done pretty poorly...

It depends what kind of quality you want... I mean I have something like this for everyday use (looks nicer though):

250

Perhaps you are looking like something more like this:

274

I kind of want something more antiqued and maybe not instantly recognizable as a jewelry box.

Hmm... custom might be your best choice then. Check with a local small cabinet maker.

You really should check out H. Gerstner and Sons, then: http://www.gerstnerusa.com/index.html

 

They have been making toolboxes (primarily for tool and diemakers' precison tools, not like Craftsman boxes from Sears) jewelry boxes, and other collectors' boxes for like a hundred years. I can vouch for the quality of their product -- my father has two walnut chests of theirs, and one of the first things I bought myself when I got a job was a Cherrywood chest.

 

For watches and cufflinks, the Style 212 might be good:

As would the Style 250:

Or especially their new bowfront chest:

Those look nice but are probably way overkill for me...

I have a charging valet with spots for my cell phone and other accessories, plus a slide out drawer for cufflinks, watches, and other jewelry.

I have a jewelry box similar the ones pictured above.

I use a few different cigar boxes that I lined with felt from Michaels crafts. Works well for my watch needs. Although now I need to get some winders for my automatic watches.

I think I am going to end up doing that as well.

Post pics please. I'm trying to find a box to store 4-5 watches, some links, and with a drawer for some watch straps/tools/etc.. I can never find anything like that.

I think Gilt is selling men's jewelry boxes right now from Steinhausen...
