This is another one of the jewelry boxes I’ve completed. The top is crotch walnut and the front and feet are spalted maple with some amborsia. The drawers are made out of ash. The finish is super blonde shellac and dark and clear briwax.

Here is a YouTube Link to how they are made: YouTube Link

Beautiful and very well done. I love the spalted maple, it makes for an excellent contrast with the walnut.

Love it. Perfect size, nice materials. The design seems exactly right to me. Not too simple, not too complicated. Well done.

Nice. Great job of continuing the grain on the drawers. Where did you find a spalted maple board that wide?

I use a sawmill located in Elkton, MD called Second Chance Hardwoods. I get all of my hardwood there. The owner is a great guy who goes out of his way to get you what you need. His prices are the best around.

Here is what the maple looks like raw…these pieces 8/4 and about from 2-4’ wide. They have been indoors drying for the last year. I have been using them for fronts on jewelry boxes. Of course a lot of it has been getting wasted as I look for just the right pattern.

Greg your project has first rate eye appeal, but that stack of 8/4 put you in the envy catagory also known as the “YOU SUCK” catagory! Thank for posting you ware and wonderful pile of wood!
