Holy cow! This came out nice. I need to make a jewelry box. Isn’t there some danger in making one too large? Empty drawers have implications.

I’ll say that’s not just any box – it is spectacular! I like the combination of woods, especially the Tiger Maple. Great job – I suspect that the wife was very happy.

Like I said on your blog this is a really nice box. The use of the three contrasting woods is absolutely gorgeous.
