I have a commission to make 4 jewellery boxes to be given as Christmas presents. The first was the Red Gum. This is the second. The third will be American Black Walnut and the fourth will be Purple Heart. I am unsure as yet what timber the trays will be or exactly how the boxes will be constructed.
The inlay and trays on this box are Jarrah, with the carcass being Tasmanian Myrtle. The inlay was glued to the box lid frame and goes right through to the inside surface. Then the lid panels were connected using 4mm dominoes. The timber is 14mm thick. Dimensions and finish are identical to the Red Gum box.
