I make several different jewelry boxes that I sell to raise money for my school or church. I, sometime, give them to people that have made a difference in my life. I gave a heart shape box to my cardiologist after my 6 by pass surgery on October 29, 2007 and to the ICU nurse that cared for me during the recovery.
This box was featured in Wood magazine May 2007 issue. I contacted David Selditz, the designer, for permission to sell it in a school fund auction. He was very gracious to give me permission. This is a great scrap wood project. Wood has a 5 minute video on making the top.
I used flame maple and mahogany for the woods. The finish is a sprayed lacquer finish.
