Here is a curly maple and walnut jewelry box I recently finished. I was inspired to make the woven veneer top panel after reading Tim Pastore’s recent article in Fine Woodworking. The weaving was very easy and fun to do. I made 3 levels of storage, with the top two being a little different. The ring slots are bookmatched dado cuts and forstner holes for bigger rings, earrings, etc. Middle tray uses holes again, with open space for bracelets, necklaces, etc. Simple dividers for the bottom.

That’s fantastic!

I’d love to know how you made that weave pattern on the top.

I really love the look of the woven veneer! That is really unique. Also, I adore the interior – very clever.
