This is a recently completed jewelry box I made for my wife. The marquetry on the top is a copy of a picture my 6 year old daughter drew of our family. The lock escutcheon is my first try at pearl inlay, I kept it simple, but I am pleased. The box is mahogany, the top of the lid is redwood burl, quilted maple and various dyed veneers. The underside is zebrawood, holly, movingui and black dyed veneers. The four dots in the corners are paua abalone. Just a tung oil and lacquer finish.
