I’ve been working on these for awhile and finally getting the time to finish them.

Both Jewelry boxes are made with Mahogany for the case and lid frame, walnut splines for the corner joints, Lace wood veneer and banding around the Lace wood for the lid. the finish is General Finishes clear sealer and 4 coats of clear matte wipe on poly then 4 coats of hand rubbed wax. The bottom is covered with red velvet. The dividers are made from Maple that where Ebonized with India ink. Thanks for looking, and comments welcomed!

Very nice job Mike, where are you buying your wood these days?

Thanks Paul & Jim!
Paul I usually get wood from Crosscut Hard Woods in Portland but sometimes I get it from Woodcrafters depending on price and selection.

Very nice job on these. The lacewood and the banding are VERY classy.

Nice looking boxes. Great use of the lacewood.

You might want to give Moxon Hardwoods a try. I have been buying there lately.

Thanks Guys! One of them is for a family friends birthday and the other one is for my Grand Daughters birthday.

SRAS I have purchased wood from Moxon before but they used to require you purchase the whole board. For large projects I check with them first for price and they are not far from where I work. They do have some very nice exotic wood.

Very nice work. The dividers really pop on those boxes. I feel your project is very sdmireable especially the fact you hand rubbbed it. Nothing like a good hand job. No pun intended.
