This small jewellery box is made from all wasted material.
All side are from 1/8 cabinet backing.
Top and bottom made of hard wood.
Inside lined with some material my wife was done with looks like velvet??
The lock hand made.
The glass cut from a larger piece.
Rolled up foam and covered with the same material at the bottom for rings and top inside brass rings for chains.
Light stain and water base varnish.
Inside back has a piece of miror.
All material used was going to waste.

Very nice. You should know, there is no scrap wood. Glad to see you made use of it. Are the flowers painted?

Like it. I haven’t seen one built like that before, pretty cool. Doesn’t sound like it cost much besides time.

Nice and different. This comment is also recycled, but sincere.

Great jewelry box, GMan. Love the use of recycled materials – makes you feel good to make something as nice as this from nothing, doesn’t it? Nice effect with the painted flowers on the outer glass and the inner mirror. You done good!
