This jewelry box is for my daughter for Christmas (she is 3.5, so no risk of her seeing it here). Her favorite color is purple, so of course I had to integrate purpleheart into it; main box is maple. All the splines are inside on the miters.
The string inlay acts as a pinstripe and goes all around the box shaping into a heart on the front. The sun inlay on the box top is yellowheart, orange osage and the center being maple burl which gives a cool sun spot like effect in the grain. The feet are routed with an ogee all the way around.
There is a removable tray which sits on rails half way down and the bottom part is for general storage.
Finished with two coats of Danish Oil and two coats of shellac.
