This is a Maple jewelry box I finished today. Tiger maple with a Wenge knob. The 2 removable trays are made from Wenge and Maple. They are mini-dovetailed together for strrength. The box bottom and tray bottoms are lined with red velvet.
I sculpted this using the new arbortech mini grinder I recently bought. Works pretty good…better than my festool, but I still need practice with it. Overall it is a good carving attachment. I ended up buying a variable speed grinder to use with it because my regular grinder just did not do well with the wide open speed.
My biggest frustration is getting descent photos on a consistent basis. I took about 50 photos using a white background and they all came out entirely too bright. The red background seems to help but it is still a work in progress to get better photos.
