First attempt at making a box,made from Jatoba.When I made this box it was not from plans I guess it was a bit bigger than most but I guess that is how you learn.T he wood for the whole box is 1 inch thick very solid and heavy,but I like it.

Nice! The thickness works. It reminds me of some 1950’s furniture.

Cassy, I find that I like my projects made from thick material, also. The jewelry box turned out very nice.

Fantastic job!
I like the proportion betweenthe top and bottom. I think it is not only a very attractive pice, it is very functional.

Congrats again on a nice job.

Great job. The thick wood goes just fine with the design. I like the coloring of the wood, the nice grain.

Are the top and bottom separate, or are they attached? I could not tell for sure from the picture.
