This jewel box is one of four in my latest project. It is made from Beech, Walnut and Teak from Burma, and the measurement are W: 195mm x L: 280mm x H: 125mm and it is treated with Liberon Finishing Oil. Production time was 25 hours on each bow.
The boxes are made as confirmation gifts, 2 boxes are sold and 2 boxes are given away to 2 girls.
To made these boxes I used my router mounted in a cabinet and the fence used was Incra LS positioner Super Systerm.

Thanks for looking and comments.

That is really nice work Oistein! I have the same Incra system, but it’s been sitting in its box for 3 years – you’ve just given me the incentive to unpack it!!!

-- If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably a wise investment.
