I needed a Christmas present for my niece, so I decided to make her this Jewelry Box that came out of Wood Magazine #165.
It was my first experience using wenge and curly maple, and I found each to be challenging for very different reasons. My planer was not terribly kind to the curly maple, and the splintering of the wenge was problematic at times.
Finished it with boiled linseed oil and some spray finish. I’m really happy with how it turned out. My curves could have been a bit smoother, and my attempt at bookmatching the top ended up with a bit of a line in the middle, but I’m pretty proud of it.
Overall, a very fun project for me (and my niece loved it too!)
