This is a jewerly box I built for my GF, I finished it about a month ago. This project was a lot of 1st’s for me, it was my 1st attempt at fine woodworking, 1st jewerly box, and my 1st time designing a project from start to finish. It took me about 3mo in my spare time, I also worked on other small projects when ever I got stuck and had to muddle things over.
The wood is curly maple and walnut. I really like the knot on the front, it sorta gives a burl feel to it. The lid is book matched and the face of the drawer was also book matched using the scraps from the lid. The inlay on the lid is Birdseye maple. I used box joints for the joinery of the main structure and lock rabbit’s for the drawer and trays. The handle was made from maple scraps with a walnut inlay. I used side rail hinges to hinge the box. I had a lot of fun building it and can’t wait to apply what I learned on future boxes.
