I couldn’t help myself. I just had to make a red and black Jewelry Box. The red wood is called Red Heart from South
America, and the black is Wenge from West Africa. These are the natural colors of these woods. As usual I do not use any stains. If I want a box to be a curtain color, I’ll use a curtain wood. One of you out there was with me when I
bought this wood. I warned you … here it is. I also used a little different style of handle.

As usual this is a Double-Double Dovetail Jewelry Box. I can’t help myself, I just love that joint. I use the incra jig for the joints. This is the only picture I took, so there are none of the inside. The inside is just like the others I’ve posted here. The box has six coats of sprayed on lacquer inside and out.

Nice photo too, great contrast with that white faux fur. Those double dovetails have always fascinated me.

Nice box and good wood color contrast. The incra jig is an amazing jig for so many different joint types. Good to see you are enjoying it

The Bloodwood and Wenge go great together. That is a nicely figured piece of Bloodwood to boot! Great job on the double double…I have an incra but have not tried that joint. Very nice though…the finish looks flawless. Thanks for sharing.

Great wood choices combined with wonderful woodworking techniques Odie.

I just bought a board of Bloodwood about 6 feet long, inch thick, 8 inches wide and was amazed at how heavy (dense) it is. Is it rough on the tools Odie? Easy or hard to work with? Just asking so I’m prepared for some extra resharpening, etc. You certainly handled it well.

Beautiful box as always and thanks for posting it!

(by the way, what’s the inside look like if you don’t mind me asking?)

I’m also a huge fan and admirer of the inset double dovetail joint. How about adding the same as a cutout handle? :)
