This walnut, and white oak jewelry box, is really easy to make, and a great project to show of your woodworking skills. I had some leftover walnut, and white oak laying around the shop. So I made this jewelry box for my Mom’s birthday. It is really heavy because I used white oak for the lid, bottom, and the feet, and used walnut for the sides. For the top I cut out a 3/4’ rabbet all around the lid, this will make the lid sit down in the box. I didn’t do that for the bottom though, I just glued it on. I would suggest cutting out a rabbet for the bottom thou. The sides I used rabbet joints also, I would of used dovetails, but I didn’t have my dovetail jig at that time. The feet are also just glued on, everything in this project is 3/4’’ thick, the white oak and walnut makes the box really heavy. This was my first project I built by myself. I hope you enjoyed reading this!
