This small juwellery box I mad from a cutoff from the legs of my ””Massiv oak table:” .I found that the pieces are to interesting to throw away. The inside, the small legs and the top inlay i cut out of the ready glued block with my woodrat and a long spiral bit. Then I installed wooden hinges. On the inside I glued instead of velvet, italian fabric wallpaper.The inlay at the top is an agate. The oak i finished with my homemade wax.

Wow, this is purely neat! I love that it is made from scrap. I make all my boxes from scrap, too. Those wooden hinges are sweet. I need to try me some of those. I love the agate in the lid! Nice work, Pasta.

Excellent use of the leftovers, I like the wooden hinges and the inset of the agate. Inspiration is found
in different places, but the artist always seems to know where to look. Thank you for sharing.
