Here are two 6 by 6 by 4 inch high jewelry boxes. they are made out of lyptus that i planed down to 1/2 inch thick pieces. this was my first time using in-lays with a kit my shop teacher bought. i stained them with a polyurethane stain mix, the stain was olde maple. i spent about 3 weeks making these and i wish i would have had more time, but school was ending. the box with the diamonds was my test box, so it is a little off, but the one with the heart in-lays is perfectly sound. i used 1/4 inch cherry strips to make the lips on the inside so the top doesn’t slide off. there is a 45 degree edge that i routed in on the top and bottom pieces.
