I made this jewelry box for my wife on her birthday. The top is made from Birdseye Maple and the base is made out of Brazilian Cherry. I put several Maple splines in the miter for decoration and added stability. I added red velvet to the inside along with a velvet bracelet stand slightly modified. The mirror was store bought but thought it added a nice touch. Finished with a lacquer spray.

Very nice. I like your “belt + suspenders” approach to splining your miters! I don’t think they are going to come apart! That is some great quilted birdseye and your Jatoba has a lot of nice color variations.
