My second box, made for my mother as a present. Made mainly from quilted maple, curly maple and ebony and tinted with NGR dye.

Updated: A better in-progress picture showing the quilted maple on the front of the box. And the makeshift, mobile, non-flat workbench I used in Hawaii. Still have that top, mostly use it for spare storage now.

This is a beautiful jewelry box. It looks similar to one my dad brought my mom home from Okinawa when he got out of the Air Force…Did you have plans to go by or did you have another one you based it off of?

Thanks for the kind words. I didn’t have any plans for it, sort of winged it off of a design I think I saw somewhere. Never really drew anything up however, just sort of wing-and-a-prayer’d it. :D

Bigike, I’m pretty certain it was Behlen’s medium red mohogany dye. Been several years but I know I used that dye for several projects.
