Hello everybody Just wanted to show you a jewelry box my son and I just finished. The box is a commision that
was done for a woman for herself. The veneer is curly maple, and was bought from a fellow lumberjock Ron Fritz. He has great looking veneer at good prices if you ever need any. The trim is bloodwood, and the inside is yellow cedar. The bottom is lined with velvet. The hinges are brusso, and the pull, and lockbox is from white chapel. The finish is lacquer. Thanks for looking. Ron

-- Ron, Michigan

That is one spectacular box, Ron! I love the pattern of the veneering, and the bloodwood trin is a perfect compliment to the maple.

Great box! I love the way you matched the top pattern to the sides – creates the look of solid “wedges” of wood. Great piece – I’m sure she will love this!

very well done.
question is the blood wood also veneer ? i have been toying around with a idea like this just not sure how to do the corners as it would be a end grain glue up and not very strong
you guys did a great job on this
