After lots n lots of distractions, breakdowns, and other just crazy things happening, I was able to get a few things done in the shop. Both of these jewelry boxes are from American Woodworker magazine, issue #168 Oct/Nov 2013. Walnut & Oak with brown leather interior trays, and Ash & Walnut with red leather interior trays. Both center tops are bookmatched panels. Thanks for looking in. Any and all good/bad/ugly comments are, well, you know.

Also I managed to make a quick sled for the bandsaw to cut miter keys. I know BigAl, the boxguy will appreciate it::

Beautiful boxes Roger! In picture #2, with the lids up, that bookmatched walnut is gorgeous. I hope it looks as nice on the outside but just wasn’t caught in the right light. I don’t know if it was intentional but the grain of the ash lid frame seems to accentuate the curved shape. Any chance you have the Wood issue number? I’d like to look back at the article.

Looking good Roger .
Great colour and wood combinations and the lids with the inserts in curved frames make these boxes .

Nicely done, Roger!

I think those tray with dividers are probably more difficult than the boxes themselves.

Beautiful boxes Roger. I like how the piano hinge is shorter, centered on the lid. Good idea with the miter key jig.
