Just a simple jewelry box I made for my brother to give to his wife on their anniversary. Lots of things i would do differently, but it was a good learning experience. Maple and African Mahogany. Shot of the top was pre-finishing.

I like the thick splines on the corners and the bottom edging around the box gives it a nice form.

Excellent craftsmanship. The simplicity outside is overcome by the looks of inside trays and compartments. I like the cover. I think you have 3 layers of wood on the cover: frame, main board, and an inlayed center top board… What a nice job. Keep it up.. Thanks for posting.

Nice design and nicely executed. I like the secret compartment in the top too. A picture of the hinges in the back would be nice if you care to share. :)
