Here is a maple and red oak jewelry box I finished not to long ago. I’m not a huge fan of red oak because it seems like it’s every where but i found this particular board to be very interesting. It reminded me of tiger striping, hence the name.
The lid is maple burl veneer and the trim and trays/dividers are from the same board, even though the grain is interrupted by the maple sides I tried to achieve a continuous flow on the rest of the box. The inside is lined with suede and hinged with side rail hinges. The finish is oil/poly home brew with a cpl coats of paste wax.
