I worked on this on and off for a month or so when a co-worker asked me to build a box for his Fiance for Christmas. I showed him some pictures and he bought it. Maple and cherry with felt flocking and 2 removable trays. The Flower on the lid is carved with a Dremel.

Very nice carving on top and I like those ’’attached’’ legs. Very practical inner compartments.

Very nice! Good wood combo and creative idea for the legs. Sets it off nicely.

jsc, there is much to like in this box. The top is nicely mitered and sanded flat. The chamfered edge is a nice touch. The attached bottom should work well with the thick sides of this box It looks like there will be lots of space for rings and earrings in this. Of course the indented carving really catches the eye and makes the box something special. Are the legs one, solid piece? You might consider working on your home page. Keep boxing and keep posting.

Thanks everyone. The legs were 1” square stock that I hogged out the interior basically making my own outside corner moulding.
