This is my first carved jewelry box. I made it using Andy’s blog-Art Box by Andy Campbell ( Great blog Thanks Andy ). The body of the box is pine with an oak handle and a walnut Danish oil finish. There are also 4 coats of poly and a paste wax buff to enhance the shine. My wife is keeping it of course, so I’m working on some more as gifts and for fun. Thank you for checking me out.

Very nice work. The lineage shows. I like what you have done with what you worked with. The lift tab seems a bit large to my eye, but the real box may look different than the pictures.

Thank you. I started w/ a smaller handle but chose to go a little wider once I started sanding and could see the lines of the box. It does look out of scale in the picture now that you mention it. But pics are no match for seeing up close.

Very nice, this has a lot of character, I like it.
