I made this jewelry box from a single block of maple burl with bark inclusions. It was originally a large bowl blank that had been sitting at the wood store for about 5 years. The internal drawers and separators are walnut and ash. The finish is dark Watco. This was my first try using Brusso stop hinges.

Great use of the bowl blank. Since I ‘turned’ from turning to box making, many of my blanks have become box sides. the mirror is a nice touch and the insides look well done. thanks for sharing your box. Maple burl is one of my favorite woods and I find it sells well!

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!

I’ve found that old bowl blanks that have dried out make great boxes. I made one once from a blank that was not quite dried out and that box ened up in the scrap bin.

I love any type of burl or figured wood. The results are really striking.
