This jewelry box was a gift to my niece. It features a padded tray and silk moire lining (thank you to my textile adept spouse for lining this). Box joinery in Jatoba, with a frame and panel lid. The insert, more of that wonderful tiger maple.

Doug,

This box is beautiful. The tiger maple is striking. I really like the clean lines, the beautiful wood, and the very clean tight look of the joinery. Looking at it makes me want to hold it in my hands. It just looks wonderfully executed. kudos

More beautiful work and I really like the subtle arch at the bottom… not to mention the outstanding wood… thanks Douglas!

Very special, Douglas. I’m sure that Madison just loves this small wooden box as do I.

I, too, have a granddaughter named Madison. Here's the box I made for her. The panel insert in Tiger Maple is beautiful.

Well, Douglas, I’d never seen this before. I’m glad Andy spoted it and brought it up. Very well done, indeed. I really like the contrast in colors and grain. Good job.

I’m very slowly catching up with comments on some back numbers.. This is as beautifully finished inside as outside. I particularly like the surprise element of the lid panel being fielded on the inside.

Gorgeous box, Doug. It has all all the elements that I love. Nice, tight finger joints. Beautiful maple. Simple design. Kudos to your wife for the textile work too. I agree with Stewart that the panel is a nice touch. You get to enjoy that maple inside and out.
