This project is a veneered jewelry box for my daughter, a variation on my last post, a humidor. After completing the humidor, I had some of the walnut burl veneer left over. I followed the same plans from the woodwhisperer for the humidor, but instead of a Spanish cedar substrate I used poplar for the sides and plywood for the top/bottom.
The trim is maple. The inner portion of the box is purple velvet over MDF. My first attempt at upholstery (not as fun as woodworking!) Quandrant hinges are from Brusso hardware.
After my trials with lacquer for the humidor, I decided to make life easier and finished this box with wipe on Arm-R-Seal, rubbed out with paste wax and steel wool. My go-to finish that is fairly noob-proof.
I placed it under the Christmas tree for my daughter who loved it! Father-in-law accidentally used it as a coaster for his coffee – I then politely moved the box to a high shelf.
