Curly Maple Jewelry Box
The sides were made from one piece of 6/4 curly maple to practice re-sawing and to be able to get a grain wrap around the exterior of the box. I bought the wood online at www.curlymaplewood.com. Top panel was done with a vertical panel bit on my router table. The splines are Wenge and were done on a homemade spline jig on the tablesaw. The inside divider is removable and the bottom is finished with black leather. Cut a piece of foam board to fit the bottom and wrapped it with black leather using spray adhesive. Brusso hinges and small knob from Rockler.
Finished with General Finishes Seal-A-Cell tinted a touch of golden oak oil soluble dye. Then three coats of gloss wipe on General Finishes Arm-R-Seal, last coat was wet sanded to 2000 grit then finished with rubbing compound and polishing compound.
This was a project to test techniques and ideas for a humidor that I am currently making.
Thanks for looking!
