I made 5 different jewelry boxes using domestic local wood with exotic wood accents. Each box is made differently from the next.

Box 1

Material used:
Maple, purple heart, blue acrylic, blue and purple felt interior
Size:
4 1/8×7 x 11 inches
Finish:
5 coats of Danish Oil

Box 2

Material used:
Cherry, padauk, and red felt interior
Size:
4 3/4×7 x 11 inches
Finish:
5 coats of Danish Oil

Box 3

Material used:
Maple, bolivian rosewood, and brown felt interior
Size:
4 3/4×7 x 11 inches
Finish:
5 coats of Danish Oil

Box 4

Material used:
Pin Hole Knot” Red Oak, bocote, zebra wood, and brown felt interior
Size:
4 3/4×7 x 11 inches
Finish:
5 coats of Danish Oil

Box 5

Material used:
Pin Hole Knot” Red Oak, yellow heart, bubinga, and red and yellow felt interior
Size:
4 3/4×7 x 11 inches
Finish:
5 coats of Danish Oil

I had lots of fun making these and lots of fun working with the exotic wood, especially the smells. The yellow heart smelled like candles and the bubinga smelled like hot chocolate when you cut or sand them.

Which one is your favorite??
My personal favorite is the cherry box (box 2).

Great collection and they all look great; however, I agree no. 2 does have the edge for favorite, Nice job(s).

These are really nice – I think I agree about 2 being favorite, but 1 is also nice, especially with the bottom tray matching the lines of the lid.

Question, did you find that it was challenging to not have the purpleheart dust turning the lighter woods around it kind of pink? I struggled with this a bit on the urn I made.

They are beautiful, Kyle. I don’t think I could pick one over the other.

They all look great. A basic design done very well in nice woods with a lot of variations. I can’t pick a favorite.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!

All of these turned out just super! My favorite is #3 (I love the carving and the feet). That last one looks like a challenge to build. I originally thought the ‘sun’ was an inlay which would be easier to do. GREAT job on all of these! All the hinges look like they came out perfectly. Are these difficult to do?
