I built this jewelry box a couple months ago. Took far too long because I tried using lacquer for the first time and had lots of difficulty.
It’s made from curly maple with black felt inside. I also made two removable boxes inside, one large box and one small one below it. I also used a lock for the first time and it turned out pretty well. I also used the table saw to make the curves on the body which was something I’ve always wanted to try. I also used joint keys (not sure of the proper name of these) for the first time. I wasn’t sure about them so I used maple so it wouldn’t stick out if they didn’t work out well.
One of these days I might find a pretty little lady that deserves it, or I might turn it into a humidor for myself! hahaha
