My wife wanted a jewelry box for her everyday jewelry at the end of the day. It is made of Bubinga and Ebonized mahogany with a lacquer finish. The ebonizing was done with India Ink on the Mahogany. Nex time I build a box like this I will use a wipe on poly satin finish.

There is nothing “Everyday” about that box. Very nice work…

Is that waterfall Bubinga?

That’s beautiful!

Not just an ole ‘everyday’ box for sure!

Another variation might be Side-Pin hinges.. instead of regular hinges…

Nice job! Really COOL!

Thank you!

If you still want to, you could use 400 grit and follow with paste wax in order to give a satin finish. The box also caught my eye and I had to tell you. Excellent job!
