This is a Jewelry Box I made for my wife. It’s made from curly maple. The main body is dyed with a liquid dye mix and the sides are dyed with India Ink then 6 coats of lacquer and then waxed. The plans are from www.woodsmithshop.com. Thanks for viewing.

Very nice workmanship. Really like the curved lid and the curly maple has a beautiful grain to it. Great job on the finish.

Thanks all for your comments!
Lizardhead I did find several articles on ebonizing wood and India ink is touted as the easiest way to ebonize wood.
