A curly red oak jewelry box I just completed. This was some of the most extreme curly red oak I had ever worked with. The inside of the box is black walnut as well as the trays. The top of the box is book matched walnut.

This is a very nice box. I guess any wood can be curly.

That extreme curly red oak and bookmatched walnut look fantastic, and you made them even more fantasticker. The box is absolutely beautiful!

Mony, I like this box. The wood is lovely and the matched veneer is really eye catching. I am especially impressed that you took the time to make a nice interior set up. The whole box looks well executed and well constructed. Well done. Keep boxing and keep posting.
