this is a simple jewelry box i have made for a gift, its made of walnut and red cedar, the inside bottom divider’s are red cedar and the rest is walnut, the handles are from a old heart pine fence post and are loaded with growth rings, i used some dogwood for the handle and screw plugs, and it will be finished with tongue oil. the handle design i used from another lumber jock who is a proficient box maker . this was a fun project and i plan on doing more that are similar ….

I would love to see more boxes like this one. It has so many elements to it. I like every thing about it and I’m definitely bookmaking this one.

I really like this one. Very creative. The shapes of the handles really set this off.

Nice grain patterns – I like it when the use of the natural walnut includes all the features of the wood. “Steamed & Darkened” walnut is too even and unnatural. The drastic contrast to me creates the beauty. The top looks like an especially nice grain pattern.
