Well this is the finished Jewelry box that i showed in Teenage Woodworker #3. Its all solid Mahogany. This was my first time mortising for hinges on a real project and those came out great. Its going to be a gift for my aunt. It is finished with 3 coats gel polyurethane and wax. Overall i think it came out great and i hope my aunt likes it.

This is a nice box. But I warn you these things can be habit forming. I am sure your aunt will enjoy the gift.

Great looking box! I am sure that your aunt will cherish it for a life time. My Mom still had the wood bowl I made for her in junior high wood shop. Now that she is gone I have it. Thanks for posting!

Looks like a great box! There is nothing like a handmade box as a gift for anyone. I’m sure she will love it.

I just wish I could see it a little better. Is there any way you could re-take the photo to do it justice? If you need help with photography tips, just ask. There are also lots of blogs about it on Lumberjocks.

-- Happy woodworking!
