I have made a Jewellery box for a friend of mine who lives in Austin TX. He’s giving it to his wife for their 18th Wedding anniversary.
The box is 300mm long x 250mm wide x 95mm deep with an extra 16mm in the lid.
The timbers are
Main Box and lid rim:West Australian Curly Jarrah.
Lid Panel” Figured Red Gum.
Trays: Figured Queensland Maple.
The box was finished in Organoil Hard Burnishing Oil. The wood was sanded to 400g dry, then saturated with oil and allowed to soak for 10-15 minutes, soaked again and sanded to 4000grit. Then the box was wiped down with a soft cotton cloth.
The hinges are silver plated brass quadrant hinges, with square ends!!
Joinery where used was Dominoes. 6mm and 5mm.
