This is an Asian inspired jewelry box I created for my mother’s birthday. This is my first attempt at box joints using a Leigh Dovetail jig. Went together very easy with tight joints. This is the first project where I let the wood grain dictate the project and I think it turned out very well. I used brass rods to connect the Black Palm handle. I used a cove raised panel bit for the upper portion of the top and a table-top bit for the bottom portion. I used iron acetate to stain the oak top which turned out very dark like I wanted. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Nice job. What is that wood on the front face of the box?

All of the box is out of a single cherry board. I have never seen that grain pattern on cherry before.

That is some very unusual cherry. Thanks for the reply.
