My first jewelery box for my daughter and also first time doing inlay at small scale. The trim inlay on the lid was with a 5/16” bit to little less than 1/8 depth for the woodcraft inlay. The cross was purchased and trimmed out with my dremel and used black wood (timbermate) filler for the inside gaps.

Used my table saw for the box joints on the Mahogany and the purpleheart for the top and bottom. I wanted to use barrel hinges but went with rail hinges instead from Rockler.

The inside of the box has a music box and cross sectioned Maple I couldn’t post pictures of those areas but it turned out well also.

Thanks for the comments … Here are few more while in the build process if they are helpful to anyone else.

Cross cut some 1/2” Maple for sectionals which can be removed from the box if needed.

Picked a music box with on off switch which is triggered with a 1/8” dowel.

Cut out area for the wind up key for the music box.
I also set in some threaded inserts from the inside so the feet could be removed.
