I picked up Doug Stowes book on boxes and have been trying out a few designs as gifts.
I built this jewellery box for my girlfriend’s birthday. The box is made from Maple with a Tigerwood inset top and a Baltic birch ply bottom. The inside consists of Padauk dividers on the bottom and a sliding upper box also made of Padauk.
Mortising the hinges was a definite challenge, mortising into the sides was took quite a bit of time and precision and I still am not happy with it! Ohh well, it holds the lid and moves well!
Its finished with linseed oil and a few coats of oil based poly.
She says the only thing I did wrong was I forgot to fill it up!
