The tray: Cherry with purple heart and oak ply bottom. Inside = 1.5” x 8.5” x 9” shellac and poly
My wife wanted it, and she declared she wanted that dimension for the INSIDE of the box. She also wanted the handle to be smaller, and the box tray to be light in weight. She KNOWS that a square box would have been faster/easier, but after 40 years, I’ve just learned to make it so. She liked it and it serves her purpose.
The box: Overall, 3.75” x 3.75” x 7” sapele, unkown top; shellac and poly
She wanted a jewelry box that would hold two wide bracelets. So, I made it to hold just two wide bracelets. The idea is that if it was bigger I might be expected to buy more jewelry to fill it… ?
... and the Zinsser clear shellac can states “not recommended for sealer under poly” I’m not sure what’s up with that… seems to work well for me.
Anyway, fun simple projects in small shop on winter days.
