This jewelry box is a gift for my wife. The box was made with “algarrobo” wood (wood native of Colombia) and pine, the corner with double-halfdovetails . The finish was made with sanding sealer and lacquer. The dimensions are 11”1/2 X 8”1/4 X 4” Thanks for look and comments on this work.

That’s a very very beautiful box. I like the way you treated the dovetail joints.
Great work, Jaime.

Excellent piece! The half blinds, were they done by hand or by a jig and router? I’m just wondering because I’m possibly looking into getting a half blind jig to make dovetails via router.

Great work!

Nicely done…the contrast in wood is excellent…and the inlay is accomplished. I find that the handle is overbearing…something a little less prominent or hidden wouldn’t have made it seem the center of attention. No, I can’t make a box like this…just that the knob seems out of place.

Tnanks Rob, the half blinds, were done by a jig and router.
