I ran across a vid of Spagnoula using some scrap wood to make a jewelry box. I had a family reunion coming up where every year we have a small auction to raise funds for the next year. I thought this would make a perfect little project for that and help clean out some scrap would at the same time. It also gave me a chance to use a hand plane to create the curve. I’ve just started using the plane and wanted to do a project that would give me some experience with it. Worked great and gave me the confidence to continue further down that rabbit hole.
The box is made of 1 piece of 8/4 Walnut and the sides are some curly/tiger maple. I sanded to 220 (180 for the sides), dyed the maple to accentuate the grain with some medium brown, and gave it a spray lacquer finish. I intended on rubbing it out more but thought the finish looked pretty good as it was on this project. Maybe next time.
Thanks for looking.
