Hello LJ’s, this recent project was my first attempt at a jewelry box, other than a band saw box. Made from Curly Maple, Cherry and Walnut and finish with Danish Oil and Bri-Wax. Our own Lumberjock member Dean J posted a spline jig which made this box just a little more interesting. I will post some pic of the jig at a later date, thanks for viewing…BC

So many talented people on this site.. I just can’t keep up… I especially like the use of the insert to position the lid.. and the dividers underneath were a nice touch.. the workmanship is superb and the choice of timber excellent…well done..

I too like the inside box to position the lid, great looking box, I am working on one myself with maple, is this called tiger stripe or curly? mine looks like it only with some ambrosia.

Very nice…I will toss in another compliment and another Oh-yeah for using the inside box as a lid positioner.

Hey BC, great job!

Tight fitting joints and beautiful wood. Looks fine.

Just a thought, How do you grab the little box to lift it out? Maybe some finger holes on the sides would help. Or maybe it is easier than it looks from here.

Thanks everyone for you kind words. Steve with the V drum sander you can achieve a nice fit with very little resistance to pull the tray out. Finger hole may be a nice adaptation in the next go around thanks for the suggestion.
