This jewelry box measures approximately 12”w x 5”h x 8”d and is made from Lacewood and Purple Heart. I tried to maintain an oriental/craftsman look. The Purple Heart posts are dadoed and beams are let into the posts and box sides. The lift out tray is divided; the tray and bottom are covered in velvet. The box is lacquered in order to keep the Lacewood as light as possible. A Chinese “good luck” coin was inlayed into the top. So far so good :).

Nice box, I’m not much on lacewood, but it looks good with the PH

That box looks really cool. Like the legs and the interior looks sharp. Did you have any kind of reaction when working with the lacewood?

The “posts” really tie the legs into the box (both figuratively and structurally 8^), very clean!

Did you hinge the lid on the rear legs with pins or are they in the back?

Thank you all very much for the comments/compliments.

Hi Dan …. No adverse reactions to working with the Lacewood, although I have read that some have been negatively affected. The older I get the more dust collection and protection i use :)

Hi Splinter … The top is hinged to rear legs.

That’s a great looking box! I like the wood combo—and love that Asian/Craftsman look!

Jay, lots to like in this design. The colors are a nice contrast. The splines as connectors to the oblong legs is a good idea. The finish, photos, and crisp look are also winners. The inset coin and brass pins are icing on the cake. You have taken care with all your details and the result is a box with real eye appeal and solid functional practicality. Nice work.
