Ribbed Box, Walnut and Curly Maple. Lining for box and tray is Faux Suede covered Cork
Finish is Satin Wipe-On Poly

Art-Deco inspired small Jewelry Box. Andy posted this magnificent box about a year ago and it got me thinking and looking at Deco design and this is what I distilled from the research. I plan to explore and experiment this style more.

Cool box. Like the contrasting wood tones. Very cool.

Very, very nice box. Kind of an art deco style, a real classic.

Another winner. You really have this “design” thing figured out.

This is a beauty.. I love it. I’ve become a boxaholic at heart, I’m just busy building a woodworker’s workbench right now, then I’ll get back to boxes… so much wood, so little time.

Great project. Did you route the ribs on the box?

The ribs were machined on the router table with an Incra fence which made even spacing simple. I found that a spiral downcut bit worked great making smooth crisp cuts, an upcut bit really made a mess on test cuts. I had not really appreciated the difference in the bits until this project (gotta love practical knowledge).

This really caught my eye, nice design and craftsmanship. I am glad that my box nudged you in this direction, thanks for the plug.
