A gift for my daughter.
Cherry and walnut jewelry box.
Sliding tray with hidden storage in the base.
I had this piece of figured walnut hiding in my shop for several years waiting for the right project.
Black velvet lining.
Original design from Wood mag. I changed it to my liking.

I love boxes and that is a humdinger. Has a sort of orental flavor to it to me. Great workmanship.

Yes, the bottom tray will accommodate necklaces nicely.

It is really a hidden compartment that is not easily visible. She does keep her necklaces in there.

Really nice. I especially like the wood choices. They go nicely together. And that crotchwood piece you chose for the top is awesome. Great job.

-- Happy woodworking!

Good job. Nice contrast with the splines and the accent in the “handle” on top.

This is a nice box. I really like the cherry and walnut combination. The grain pattern of the walnut is gorgeous. I will have to put a box like this on my list.

Thanks for sharing.

Very nice. Good choices of wood and design. I like it.
I also noticed the wrap around cherry grain matching. Good job.

Very nice! I really like the use of the base as an ‘extra’ necklace tray.
