This curvaceous jewellery box is created in a mid 20th Century modern design using warm walnut veneers which are book matched on the lid top and also the box front where it has effectively created a natural, ready made escutcheon. The lift out trays are created from matching walnut which is lined in soft, luxurious raspberry calf hide. All the hardware is my own design Neat range, finished with several coats of Acrylic.

Beautiful wood and calfskin. The colors contrast nicely. A very elegant box. Good job.

Super sleek. Very nicely done. I like the way you did the compartments inside. Really like the curved edges outside.

Very elegant. The grain pattern matches the curved top beautifully. What are your views on Acrylic finish?

Thanks guys kind words – acrylic finish is great! easy to spray and quite hard wearing.

Ian, Beautiful looking box! What method do you use to get those miters on the corner of the box you made so perfect? Are you a hand tool guy or power tool guy? Great job on this!

03roadking – mitres are brought to a crisp edge with the disc sander, but you have to bear mind that although you might get clean mitres this way the glue used and how it is used is also very important!.

I’m a bit of both but more towards the power side :)

Cheers
