This jewelry box is made of solid Wenge with a Paduak lid, framed with Wenge. It is finished with clear shellac.
This was my first time using a full mortise box lock, and the first time installing quadrant hinges, and I learned a lot.
The tray inside is made of reclaimed quartersawn oak, but not sure what kind. Its almost got a maroon color to it.
The tray rests on two sycamore rails, and is lined with suede with a patch of gray sheepskin.
I took the pics of the tray before I cleaned them up with a final sanding, so there is a bit of glue smudged on them still in the pics. I learned that using spray adhesive can be messy. Next time if using it, I would mask the box sides with tape. Oh well :)
The box went to my girlfriends mom for a late Christmas gift. She adored it.
Thanks for lookin!
