I recently made 4 Jewelry boxes for sale. One, made of Spalted Beech and Spalted Maple Burl, sold as soon as I took it into a co-op art gallery. where I work one day a month Another person working there snatched it up. The others are at home waiting for a show in a few weeks. They are all of the same pattern or style, but different wood combos. This one is Curly Ambrosia Maple with a top of Maple Burl framed with Padauk The trays are soft, curly maple. I wedged the bottom tray under the supports for the top tray so it can be removed, but is still firmly in place. The finish is Watco Natural Danish Oil. The size is 11” x 8” x 6”.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!

Nice design and wood choices. I know that the pictures can’t really show how great they must look.
