This jewelry box was inspired by Marc Spagnuolo

I got about half way through with this but wasn’t interested in finishing it until a friend said they would buy it if I did. They wanted those bird designs on the box, I used a wood burning tool.

Woods used: Walnut, cherry, Maple

Velvet material on the inside which has a sticky backing for easy installation

I used epoxy to glue the barrel hinges in and finished this with Deft Lacquer Satin Spray which works great.

Very nice and interesting concept, regarding layout of sides and top. I like those striped sides.

Like Ivan said – I like the sides, neat concept

I like it. This design scaled up would make a great chest.

I like your box, were those hinges difficult to install?

- Belford

Yes they were difficult, especially since I used a hand drill, and the right amount of epoxy was a bit tricky as well. Hard to not get it on the moving parts of the hinge.

This is an amazing piece of art as this is the true architecture that everyone inspires. I love to collect jewelry as this is my passion to shop online and collect amazing jewelry collection. For this i use to buy amazing jewelry boxes to keep my jewelry save. I wish i could get this one. Last week i bought a Pandora Jewelry collection by using Black Friday Coupons 2017 and believe me it was an awesome experience to use such discount codes. I highly recommend you all to have these codes and share your experience with me as well.

Great jewelry box!! Love the design. It WOULD be a great chest like swirt has already commented.
Just f.y.i. I’ve flagged the inappropriate comments as spam. Hate to see a great build hijacked by spammers.
I really like the bird images burned into the cherry.

I have seen them at Bed Bath and Beyond and I am sure that other, similar stores carry them as well. I have also seen them at Costco. Mashreq Bank Online UAE Since I live in California and I do not know what country you live in, you may wish to try online. Most are manufactured in China and poorly made. If you wish heirloom quality, something that will last, check quality furniture stores and be prepared to pay some money for it. Good luck!
