Cantilever Jewelry Box

This is an elm jewelry box I just finished. It is elm, rosewood sides, and a jatoba base. It’s based on the Cantilever Box that was in Wood Magazine a few issues back. I just increased the size to handle two boxes instead of one. It’s finished in tung oil. The sides are made to resemble a sail.
The biggest headache with this one was sanding down the elm to make the rounded front. I’d forgotten how hard elm can be.

Is this for the Frank Lloyd Wright inspired box contest? If not, it sure could be – your version of his cantilevered homes! Very nice :)

Thanks for the comments. A buddy of mine told me it looks great, now how about doing one based on the Great Pyramid. I hate getting a good idea, now the wheels are spinning and sleep will not be an option tonight. :-)
