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!

Thanks,

You did a really good job with that build. Something for you to be proud of, and something for your mom to cherish for a lifetime.
You have been cranking out the projects pretty good lately, pretty soon you’ll need to get a business license.
Thanks for showing.

Your mom will be happy.
The fact that you used rabbet joints rather than just BUTT joint is a sign that you are interested in wood joinery. It sounds like you have leaned from this one and the next one you will try even more joinery methods. Keep up the good work…...you have a lot of years ahead of you to enjoy woodworking.
