I finally got around to making a jewlery box for the wife. had some fun with learning how to faltten and use some nice venier. the venier did crack as it was clamped and the glue dried, i thought it gave the look of age, oh well what can you do? though i took the photo in the sun to help show the grain of the mahogany, it realy pops! Its made of cherry, tiger maple, spalted maple and mahogany crotch veneir and finished with danish oil and a dark wax. The “A” is there because my wifes name is Angie and there were 13 nails, not a good number. thanks for looking.

That’s a beauty! I learned a bad lesson about big jewelry boxes – they want you to fill it up.

This is a real nice box, somehow it got me thinking of different ways to design a box and the different parts of it like hinges and they way they mt on the doors and help make the door move so hopefully I’ll come up with something trend setting for all the box makers out there THANKS!
