So this is my first jewelry box. I made it for a friend for Christmas. Pretty simple design. It is made of Gaboon Ebony and Purple Heart; black flocking through out. It is finished with Renaissance Wax. The scroll work was designed by me but I did cheat in cutting it out. I scanned it into my computer, changed the format and had a shop here cut it out on their lazer engraver. The scroll work piece itself is sandwiched between 2 pieces of glass so that I dont have to worry about dust collecting in the piece. It took me about 2 months of working on it here and there when I had time off from working on other projects in the shop. I actually built the lid first as a stand alone piece and then decided that while I like it, it needed something else to go with it. It just wasnt complete yet. So I designed and built the box to go with it. The handle for removing the tray is made from a scrap piece of ebony I rounded out on my lathe.
