Walnut Maple Jewelry Box

I made another jewelry box using my selection of spalted maple (w/ amborsia) and walnut. This box is the same as others I have made in the past. The finish is blonde shellac and Briwax. This might be the last time I put on a shellac rubbed out finish on these boxes. Although I like how they turn out, it is just too time consuming (a 10 hour process). The real reason I am posting another box is because I spent a some time trying to photograph the box to show off the beauty of the wood. I hope these pictures look better.

Wow, that is very nice. The spalted maple is extraordinary, and the shaping of the legs is great. The mirror was throwing me off, I thought you made a perfectly symmetrical piece.

Outstanding! I have also made some boxes using the same pattern I also used spalted mable and walnut, I made a few modifications on the plan as I was not real satisfied with the drawer slides. However it may have been more of a workmanship issue than a design. You have an exceptional finish and I love it. Again I say outstanding. Merry Christmas!

Excellent and stylish design. Woods look great. Drawers are very nice – you can organize jewellery very good in them.
