Rockler Woodworking and Hardware sent me over some Vertex Satin Nickel Solid extruded hardware to try out in this weeks Inlay Jewelry box video. I made the jewelry box from Walnut and it features some Pecan and Mahogany inlay. The box has 3 drawers plus the main compartment under the lid. Here is a look at the box along with the videos of the build.

Great piece there Laney !
The wood is beautiful, and the inlay adds a splendid touch.
I like your choice of drawer pulls too, as they compliment the project’s design.
Nice job !

Nice little box. Sometimes it’s easy to say “it’s just a box, how hard can it be”, but making a box can be very involved. So, a box is not just a box, it’s a box. Thanks for the inspiration.
