Jewelry Box project i used several types of woods and also a music Box Tumble Mech.

Wood Used1: Cherry
Cherry is a premium American hardwood prized for its natural luster, attractive grain, and rich, warm glow. Green Design Furniture works in cherry harvested from the Allegheny Forest region of Pennsylvania and West Virginia, an area recognized for its sustainable forest practices. This wood has a consistently high quality of grain, color, and width.

Wood Used2: Pudak
Padak wood is one of the heaviest, hardest and strongest timbers in south East Asia. It is known to be the best all round timber after teak. It is primarily used for its orange-red color with pronounced darkening when fully oxidized.

Wood Used 3: Walnut
The Tree: Juglandaceae family
Walnut is sometimes called eastern or American black walnut. There are about twenty species of walnut with six found in the U.S.A. Black walnuts were once abundant in old growth forests with trees reaching 150 feet with six-foot diameter trunks. Today’s trees are generally 80-100 feet tall with trunks of less than three feet.

Music Box was added connected to the top lib section. This is a Standard Model Movement that includes the Winder Key – under $20.00 also 1 picture pendant and 1 heart clock pendant – Gold.

Finish:
MinWax Tung Oil Gloss
