This jewelry box was a wedding gift for my god-daughter. She wanted a jewelry box and she saw this one from WOOD magazine and asked if I would make one like it. What am I going to say ? But of course I can!
I wasn’t going to post this as there are many like it already posted and it is a plan from a magazine. However, it did turn out quite nice and I do like the design, so, here it is….......

Of course, finished with Danish oil and Black Bison Wax…..

Gene, I agree with everyone above!..It is a lovely combination that shows your craftmanship.
What magazine had the original plans and did you make any changes to the design.
lovely work

I don’t think you could have picked two better woods to go together if you tried! Wow, what a great job. Don’t sell your self short just because it came from plans. It still takes skill to make it lok this nice. Think of it this way, there are all kinds of books to fix cars but many take it to mechanics.

GREAT JOB! Thx for sharing

Gene;

I love the way you have the piece of wenge on the front of the lid. Sticking out like that is a beautiful design detail that adds so much to the piece.

Great choice of woods, too.

Overall, very beautiful job.

Great box Gene! The plan was just a launching point, you made it your own.
