I decided to make my niece a jewelry box for Christmas this year. I used Purpleheart for the legs and top and Lacewood for the sides and dividers. I used barrell hinges for the top, which were tricky to install. I think it turned out pretty nice. I put on five coats of Clear Polyurethane, with a final coat of paste wax. I think i will try some wipe on Poly next time.

I am sure she loves it, the pruprleheart and lacewood go together very well, and the curve of the legs give it a nice flow.

Nice jewelry box. Did you do this from a plan or just ideas you put together yourself?

This is really a good looking box. The legs are great looking. Good job.
