This is a simple jewelry box I made for my daughter. Mahogany with a satin clear laquer finish. Two lift out trays with felt liners. Ebony dovetail keys add detail.

Great job on the box! I’ve never worked with mahogany before – sure looks nice on your box. Very nice job on the trays – I like the domed shape with the through hole. Looks real nice.

The outside design is one of my favorites. Love those dovetail miter keys. Very special.

Great box. Love the dove tail keys and the humped trays.

Keep it up.

I like the austerity/simplicity of the box. The simple details, make it come together

Nice. The design really works for me. The keys are just enough without over doing it.
I really like the top, very thin on the sides, and beveled on the top.

Very nice job, I like the choice of wood with the keys adding contrast. nice job on the interior, with the detail of the pull out trays. I have not done much with keys as of yet, that looks to be a difficult cut to make a dovetail one, great job!
