This is probably the first “nice” project ive tried, as im pretty new to woodworking.
A jewelry box I made for my mom. Solid cherry with walnut miter keys and walnut edging on the top. Finished with Danish oil.
The top carving was hand drawn petunias and vines, done with chisels and a couple finer carving tools. I kind of like the look of tool marks sometimes so I left them in the bottom of the carving. Got the idea for the carving from a Fine Woodworking magazine

Very lovely box. Mom must have been very happy to receive it. Really good work for your fist box. Welcome to LJs.
