I made this jewelry box for my wife. This was a fun box to build. The sides are bookmatched African Rosewood. The top is, I believe, Spalted Maple. The bottom is Sapele. The mitered corners have black walnut splines. Hinges are Brusso. Overall I’m very happy with how it turned out. My only gripe is my hinge mortises must have been off ever so slightly, the lid is shifted to the left about a 32nd of an inch….I’ll get over it, in time.

Nicely done. This particular lid works very well with the rosewood sides. Nice lift and interior.

Nice job, pretty wood. Put some pressure on the top with some soft clamps. adjust slowly over several days until that 1/32” is adjusted out. Go slow and gentle, it will move.

Neat box, great looking wood. The Brusso 90° stop hinges are wonderful for smaller boxes. The combination of woods is very appealing.
