The top for this jewelry box is a piece I pulled out of a friends scrap barrel that was reaching out to me. After resawing and gluing it back together this is what I was able to come up with.

Nice bookmatch … most impressive. HA … from scrap to a piece of art! How thick is the top?

It’s beautiful. I really like the natural edge handle too.

Wow—that’s a beautiful bookmatched lid! It looks like a guy standing with his arms up, and water pouring down over him. Amazing!

The rest of the box ain’t too shabby, either!

I’m working on a small walnut table with a top that also has some cool grain patterns. What did you use to finish this and get the grain to pop?

That is some wild grain, very nice. I like the shaping of the bottom edge, too.
