Jewelry /music box
I think the veneer is satinwood with African black wood edging and feet. The edging is mitered and finished with a 1/4” radius and finished with lacquer. The trays are black wood and a music box is tucked into the corner hidden under the tray. The lining is a dark green velvet type of material and the monogram is gold stitching.
Thanks for looking

Hi Ashe, the Baltic birch plywood corners are mitered and glued. I think with the edging it gives it the extra glue surface. I tried to break open one of my trial boxes, it was a tough go…
The trays are African black wood, mitered with a hardboard base dadoed in.

Hi Ashe,
I dado the bottom in flush, the bottom is 1/2” same as the sides I guess I could use 1/4” but I like the extra heft. You will have to get a longer key if you use a music box. You may want to veneer the bottom before you glue it in.
Good luck with your project.

Very nice, I like the look. Your satinwood veneer can be specifically identified as Nigerian Satinwood or Movingui.
