Really great looking box; she’s going to love it. Really like the contrasting wood, and the crisp design.

Nice looking box. I wish you would have showes the top to reveal the curly maple. A lot of us here really like to see the figure in the wood. Maybe on your next box. Thanks for sharing it.

I second Dusty56’s question. What are the drawer bottoms made from? Beautiful figure in there. I’m working up the courage to try some burl veneer on a jewelry box and I thought that might be what you did in the drawers. This is a gorgeous project.

There isn’t anything lining the drawer bottoms – yet. What is in the picture is just the 1/8” hardboard (the only thing in the project that isn’t solid wood.) However, I am planning on flocking the drawer bottoms using Suede-Tex Spray-on Suede Flocking Fibers
Unfortunatley, because the adhesive (color matched) is flammable, it can’t be shipped via air, which means that I can’t order it from the company. They have over 30 colors available, but I’m limited to what I can get at my local Woodcraft store, which takes my color choices to 1, which is blue.
The reviews on the product are all positive… I’ll post another picture when I’m done.

Thank you for all of the comments! I’ve seen some of the other projects posted, and I know that I have a lot of work to do before I can come even close to most of them!

Oh, and for the wood selection – again, not specifically my idea, those are the woods called out in the magazine. This was my first time working with wenge. However, I am a big fan of two-tone projects, mixing a light and dark wood.
