A beautiful jewelry box—I love the Art Deco look of it!

The only other thing I’d say, is that it feels like the legs should be a little larger—both in length and width. Not a criticism, just an observation.

Thanks for posting!

Beautiful design and impecible craftsmanship. the little legs give it a lift and the rest of the lines give it a strong presence…...beautiful piece.

Paul, I like the small details that you have used on the top. The inlaid squares and the line around the top of the bevel give it a subtle, but beautiful touch. The strong contrast between the sycamore and purpleheart make the legs, lift, lines and squares really stand out. Good choice of colors. This box has a great deal of eye appeal and fine craftsmanship. The photographs of your work are well done and well lighted.

As a practical consideration, I have found that making the tray smaller than the box so that you can slip your hand under and just lift out the tray allows you to use dividers that are less robust. It also eliminates the need of a handle or pulling on the dividers. This is an example.

You have a great sense of style and impeccable craftsmanship and finish in this well-built beauty. Thanks for sharing it with us. Keep boxing and keep posting.

Thanks everyone for your kind remarks. Thanks Dean for your constructive observation I will experiment with larger legs on future projects. Thanks Boxguy,thats a good point you make and I will also look to trying that idea in future boxes.
