This is a jewelry box that I made for my wife for our 5th wedding anniversary. All the wood is reclaimed or scraps. Starting with the lid, it is American walnut with maple framing it, then wenge in the middle band and merbu on the bottom, the base is scrap 6mm ply lined with felt. The removable tray is made with afzelia and I used teak for the dividers, not sure what the base is but it was scrounged from some old panelling that I came across at work, its also lined with felt. The bottom dividers are also wenge. The stay on the left is made with merbu, as are the stands in the four corners for the tray. The rose pattern on the top was done on a cnc machine at work and filled in with a mix of afzelia sawdust and varnish. I work with some pretty generous guys and they took the time to help me get it looking this good.
I finished it with a couple coats of clear varnish and wax (not sure what kind it was).
It took ages to make because I only got an hour or two here and there but it was great fun and I’ve learned a lot.
