This project taught me to check under a good light when sanding. You can see the planer marks from dull blades in the first pic that I had to go back and sand out. It was a neat little box to make with a cool piece of walnut for the top. The inside has sapele wood dividers in the bottom and a tray and dividers made from the same. The dividers are removeable so that it could be used for other jewelry if needed. I cut a relief under the lid to make it easier to lift. One thing I would have done different is trim out the underside with the router to lighten the lid.

Very nice.. love the grain on the top! Walnut is classic & elegant.

Nice little box. Walnut is a supurb wood with a fantastic grain. This style of box could be made to size for many different collections. Great design and build.

Keep it up.

The relief was a good idea. Looks good.
