This is a jewelry box I made for my daughter from a walnut tree I removed from our yard. Inside there is a sliding tray and ring holder. I finished the box with 3 coats of poly and 1 coat wax.

Kevin, this box has a lovely grain with a great finish. I wish you had used up the other 5 shots. It would be nice to see more to know how it was made, and I would love to see the inside.

It is not too late, you click on the red “edit” on your posting and you can add dimensions and more pictures at any time. Don’t forget to go to the end of your posting and hit “save changes” when you finish edits. From what I can see this is a nice build. Keep boxing and keep posting.

I like the wood, I am sure pictures cannot show the real to life beauty.

Is it just your camera or did you dye this wood. It looks very red on my end. Just curious.

And I agree – more pictures!
