This is a jewelry box I made for a client. The box is made of walnut and cherry. I went a little “crazy” with the top and added some gum. The two trays are also cherry and walnut. I just noticed that the circles i drilled in the top tray are not centered. Dang it!

Nice box and wood combinations. Just promote the design as ” comes with offset holes” for that abstract look. That is what I would do.

Box looks great. And the off center circles still look symmetrical since you did it to both sides so it doesn’t even look like a mistake except to you. We are our own worst critics.

Leith I am becoming a fan of your boxes and your photography work. I really like the wood selections and design elements that you put i n your projects. Are your boxes felt lined or is that a foam insert? – can’t tell for sure in the picture.

Another Great Job Leith!! Your boxes have that certain, “just want to reach out and touch them” quality…
Very Well Done, my Friend!!
