Here are some more jewelry boxes I made based on the jewelry box design from Wood Magazine (Gem of a jewelry box). These are also made from Walnut and Ash. I used ash with grain patterns. I had a piece of curly ash that was a creamy white color that was used on one of the tops. The tops are a single piece of ash that was book-matched and glued to make a nice pattern.

The finish is three coats of Formby’s Tung Oil finish high-gloss. One of these was rubbed out with Briwax and steel wool to give it a satin finish. Each drawer has a felt liner that was glued using spray adhesive. I made a number of these boxes using different combinations of walnut, ash, cherry and spalted maple. The hinges are Brusso solid brass hinges.

Both eye catching projects. You have mastered the grain flow for maximum aesthetic. Craftsmanship is also outstanding.

Really nice projects all round.

More great work, really like your color combinations – that purple will look real good with gold and silver. My only suggestion (after working in a jewelry store for 10 years) is to add those foam inserts to hold rings – customers LOVE that feature. Thanks for sharing.
