I made this for my sister who has a lot of jewelery but never had a jewelery box. It was made fairly early on in my woodworking journey but I liked it. It is unstained as my sister wanted to choose the stain. It took me about a total of 3 hours not including drying time for the glue.
Most the joints are butt joints as I did not feel confident enough to do dove tails at the time – that has changed. I will make her another one soon.
Things I learned -1) flocking is a very messy job and you should wear a mask to prevent sneezing. 2) Even when not running router bits can still cut your fingers! 3) I wish I had done this in a more exotic timber.
-- The wood slayer - Yes dear I did plan to make more kindling out of that wood I have been drying for the last year - honest!
