this is the jewelry box that I made in Paul Schurch’s class..I had a ball and was the only one to complete the box in the allotted time frame. The box has only one coat of finish on it and I completed it the very next morning..

I made the parquetry pattern on the top out of walnut burl background.. with an ebony filetti, and a tiger maple border..the jester in the middle is holly and mahogany. the underside is a 4 way bookmatch of walnut burl

Great box! I love the top and I think I love the underside of the top even more.

Thank you all very much!!!
Michelletwo.. the sides of the box are joined with domino’s.. we used the festool domino cutter which was sweeeeeet!! (cost 775 bucks for the tool if I wanted to buy it..LOL)

richgreer.. the underside is jewelry box grade walnut burl..the top is actually made of the same veneer, but with the jester cut into it..it’s hard to tell they are the same.. my wife loves the bottom also..lol
