Hey guys! Just some more boxes I made for clients. The jewelry Box with the tray is made of Walnut, Ipe, Pine, and a redwood that I cannot identify. The second box is made of the same. It is sort of a copy of the last box. I made the last box a few years ago.

Beauty! You should look into EVA “Foamies” at the craft stores very tight foam pads in great colors for foam lining.

I LOVE THEM! They’re really gorgeous boxes – the closeups of the contrasting wood show the true beauty!

Nicely done, I’m going to try some of that checker-board joining on my next box project.
