This is my first attempt at moving from smaller valet/keepsake/jewelry boxes to something a bit larger.
Made from a single curly maple board.

Great job! Love the way you wrapped the maple around the box and made it pop!

I’ve been asked to make a jewelry box for my mother-in-law’s bday on somewhat short notice, but I might end up going with a similar design if you don’t mind.

Clean design, lets the wood speak for itself. The finish is great, too.

Very nice box and selection of woods. Tiger maple is such a nice wood and the burl top really stands out.

-- Every step of each project is considered my masterpiece because I want the finished product to reflect the quality of my work.

Beautiful! Nice detail on the inside also. And I love the faux three-drawer division that turns out to be only one.

Some wonderful grain in the maple and the burl inset in the lid is fabulous. A very nice result.

Very nice project. It all works so well together from the design to the wood choice to the finish. That will make someone very proud to own it. I like the effect you achieved with the drawer.

I love curly maple, and that top panel sets it off perfectly!
