Although most likely not an 18th century style jewelry box, this jewelry box was made entirely by hand – using the same tools, techniques and finishes that would have been used in 1750. This box is made with figured (for the body) and plain (for the the drawer faces) Cuban Mahogany for the primary wood and quartersawn Yellow Pine for the secondary wood. The finish was achieved with alkanet root and oil for color, Shellac as the finish and topped off with beeswax.
