I’ve made eight of these jewelry boxes from Philippine mahogany
and bubinga. The brass latch is Brusso. I made the feet,
lid support and inlays from brass bar stock. I wanted these
boxes to be special for my daughter and her cousins, so I made
cutouts and placed flash drives inside to hold family pictures
and short videos. It also contains a list of cousins and their
numbered box. My intention is to make family heirlooms that
my daughter and her cousins can enjoy for years to come; long
after I’m gone. I hope they will bring back fond memories
and encourage them to stay in touch through the generations.
It would be interesting to know how long these boxes last and
where they wind up. That’s something I’ll never know. I hope
my intentions are understood and appreciated.
