This is an 8 sided jewellery box made of bloodwood with strips of maple, purpleheart, tigerwood and lacewood on the top. I made the hinges from leftover material with 1/8” brass rods and used a burgundy flock on the inside and removable tray. There are some tricky miter cuts on this project and being only an amateur wood worker, it was quite a challenge and is far from perfect. Of course, once I made the first one I had numerous requests for more so did a second one using lacewood as the prime choice of wood. Both boxes have 6 coats of tung oil rubbed into them.
