This is a box I made for my daughter. I won’t call it a jewellery box as I don’t want to define what it “should” be used for. That’s up to my daughter.
It is made primarily of lacewood (or London Plane) with American black walnut trim and drawer fronts. The drawer fronts and the little walnut drawer knobs are inlaid with mother-of-pearl. The hinges and clasp are made of copper and were shop made.
You will notice an area of burn along the hinged edge. This was on the table saw and I didn’t have enough of the lacewood spare to replace the piece and planing past the burned edge would have resulted in a poor fit so I decided to live with it. We live and learn.
