Here is a mitered spline jewelry box I made for my wife. I took my wife to pick the wood, and I think she did a fantastic job. It’s made with figured walnut, and the top is made of two different veneers (quilted maple and birdseye maple) glued to plywood and framed by Peruvian walnut, with Macassar ebony splines. The sliding tray is made with half-lapped birdseye maple with a 1/8 plywood bottom, lined with purple velvet. It is sanded to 400 grit (wet sanded at 400) and finished with Daly’s Seafin Teak oil and Liberon Black Bison paste wax.
It is my first such box and I learned a few tough lessons for such a small project but in the end, I’m very satisfied with it. Thanks for looking!
