A close family friend’s young 15 year old son approached me before Christmas. He wanted to make a Jewelry box for a certain young lady he is head over heals for. He brought me 3 pieces of oak and wanted me to cut them so he could make this box. Well…...after asking many questions about how he was going to do this he and his Dad suddenly realized…..it was probably not going to go so well so he asked if I might be able to help.
This was a surprise for him. I built it as I went along, and let it take a form of its own as its construction moved along. Its soft tiger maple, with purple heart details.
Thanks for the views.
I will try to get some more photos after he has applied the felt to the tray and box interior. I wanted him to personally do something to do the box for his special young lady.
