My daughter requested a Jewellery box for Christmas, been a bit of a hack wood worker this had a few firsts for me to try and it came out pretty good i think.

Fitst time i had tried, Mitred joints, splines and finished with burnishing oil (which made it smooth as glass).

The walls are just cheap popular from the local hardware store the inserts lid and splines are made from zebra wood (zebrano).

Cheers

A great job on all your “firsts”. That top tray is some amazing wood. The “burnishing oil” was a new one on me.

The Burnishing oil was great will use that a lot, it leaves the wood very smooth but does feel like an artificial finish.

Its not too hard to do 2 applications was enough, i kept the sawdust and used it with the oil to work into the wood.
