I made this jewelery box from recycled wood that machinery were crated in shipped from Singapore. I do not know what this wood is but it is one of the hardest wood I have ever worked with and took almost forever to get it sanded smooth! I put (if I remember right) 10 coats of polyurethane varnish on this box. The polyurethane was left over from hardwood floor coatings so I decided to use it up. It is lined with felt wrapped around hard cardboard for dividers and liners. I must say that it still looks terrific after 35 years, yes there are a few light minor scratches and the hinges are a bit tarnished and there is a crack in the center of the bottom board (I guess from humidity changes over the years) However I think it has held up better than I did over the same period of time!
Enjoy looking, Critiques won’t matter on this one cause I am not going to change anything on this!
