Jewelry box made from bird’s eye maple with ziricoti accents and dovetail corner posts. The hinges are 5mm barrel hinges with a 45 degree chamfer cut on the back and lid. The lining is dyed deer skin.

The dovetail corner posts are actually two half blind dovetails. The contrasting colors make the cornesr look much more intricate than they really are…

The finish is two coats Odie’s oil.
