My last box before Christmas. This jewelry box is built from local Missouri Figured Black Walnut and Claro Walnut. The top is trimmed with Ambonia Burl and Ebony. The box is 13” x 9” x 5.5”. The finish is about 8-10 coats of Waterlox applied by wiping on, allowed to cure then a light rubbing out.

Thanks for looking.

Mony, what a wonderful creation. With an inlaid top, beautiful woods, super internal trays, faux legs, corner splines, a flawless finish, pleasing proportions, and real craftsmanship, this is a masterpiece. You certainly have mastered every phase of box making. Thanks for sharing this with us. Keep boxing and keep posting.
