Jewelery Box

I built this jewelery box to donate to our children’s school auction. It is made out of figured makore, with handles of African Blackwood. I lined the drawer bottoms with velvet.

This was my own design. I tried to give it a bit of a Japanese look. The drawers were originally going to be flush with the front, but after a small mistake my wife suggested I just inset them slightly – and we liked the look. Hopefully a couple of people show up at the auction ready to bid!

That’s nice. And I like the drawers being set in. I think it enhances the look. Really nice work

Nice design. I agree that the drawers look good as they are. What finish did you use?

Yeah, that’s really nice. It looks like it’s meant to be with the drawers set in like they are. Nice work and design.

Love this jewelery box, unique design I have never seen. How is Makore to work with? I stick with domestics as my buddy is a sawyer.

Great job! The grain orientation is off the hook! The only thing I don’t like is I dont have one :>)
