I was approached some months ago by a lady who wanted me to make her a jewellery box to celebrate the forthcoming birth of her baby. I had to wait weeks for some feedback as her husband forbad her to open the parcel until the little one was imminent. However, she was delighted.

This one features a wooden hinge.

Here is an explanation of my way with wooden hinges

Cool box. The hinges, dovetails, all look great. What did you use to line it with?

jayjay – The fabric lining is crushed velvet. I look out for garments in charity shops /thrift stores. They can yield a few square feet for next to nothing. I did get strange looks however when (without my wife in attendance) I bought a purple velvet mini skirt!

The figuring in the lid puts me in mind of an old treasure map.

Mr. Stewart, I thought the bottom was slate. How goofy is that. I had some oak burl like that isn’t it gorgeous? I still have some and you gave me a great Idea for it. Your box is beautiful, the burl is extraordinary, and the hinges are very cool. If old Don from down under were still here he’d give you an A+, me too.
