I built this Padauk Jewelry Box a couple of weeks ago but did not complete it since I needed to make the two trays/dividers (Wenge & Padauk) and I had a hard time finding a velvet color that did not look obnoxious with the orange color of the Padauk. I finally decided on black velvet since it was pretty much able to go with any color. I had red, green and tan in stock…but no black, so I had to order some so I could finish this project.
Padauk is hard for me to photograph, especially with the black velvet & wenge. I really need to spend more time improving my photography skills because after about 100 photographs this is the best I could come up with and the colors are not true, they are too bright. Anyone know of any excellent photography books???
