Small jewelry box for niece’s upcoming college graduation. Right out of one of Doug Stowe’s books. Walnut and Yellowheart. There were challenges along the way, for my skill level, but I was happy with the end result. As usual, mounting the mortise hinges was the biggest challenge. I also opted to plane down walnut for the lid panel instead of using plywood.

Fantastic box. Love the wood combo. Great build. Still have to get one of Dougs books for myself.

Keep it up.

looks great, Nice job on the concealed hinges, and the off-set splines look great too. I always enjoy making sliding tray iin boxes. It add much more functionality to it.
I see you carried the spline work onto the trays too. Nice touch, really brings it all together.

That’s a beauty all the way around!

I really like the contrasting wood, especially with the miter keys. (I say this because I am really liking miter keys right now and will have to try incorporating them into a project soon.)

A nicely executed piece of woodworking here, from start, to finish. Excellent job!
