This was only my second Jewelry box. I made it out of some leftover wood from the bookcase on my projects list. I used a spline jig to put the walnut splines in on the table saw. It was topped off with a coat of tung oil and a few coats of wipe on poly.

Is the lid hinged, or is it set in place with a rabbet? It’s beautiful.

The lid does have a about a 3/16 rabbit that keeps it in place. No hinges it just pulls off.

The way I shaped the top is that I made a jig for the tablesaw that holds the lid vertical and moved the blade to about a 15 degrees and just used a wooden handscrew to keep it in place. Here is an example: http://www.thisiscarpentry.com/2011/03/18/raised-panel-table-saw-jig/

Anyone that uses this configuration should take care to clamp the piece down

Nice job.. that’s a tough wood combo to pull off and you did it well. I think the sapwood tied it together nicely.
