Jewelry box made from cherry, lyptus and wavy maple. Woodcraft hinges stop at 95 degrees. Splined miters were used with cherry and wavy maple drawer dividers. Runners for drawers are white oak. Tenons for handle were turned on the lathe (cherry and maple). I cut the maple escutcheon on the scroll saw to match the shape of the handles on the sides. I modified plans from Woodsmith Magazine #159.

Beautiful jewelry box! What type of finish did you use? The grain stands out nicely.
