WELL ladies and gentlemen… the journey that was the jewellery box has come to an end. I am quite pleased with the final outcome. I havnt taken many pictures, it’s late here and there’s no good light available, but thought you might like to see it before I upload some pictures to the finished projects section.
I give you, the jewellery box:
a view of the front side of the box, with the latch in place.
a view of the marquetry I did, it’s finished laquering. I decided not to revisit the middle flower, i can live with it. and It isn’t hand made if there arn’t a few nicks, dents and flaws in it anyway.. I didn’t want a glass looking finish either.. besides, it’s a sort of “rough” looking box in the first place and I think a flush glass finish will contrast in a bad way with the look of it.
a look at the inside of the box.
Tomorrow when it’s light out I’ll take some better pictures of it and upload it to the “completed” projects section :)
thanks for following and cheers to everyone for your positive support. appreciate it guys, you rock.
