A solid sycamore jewellery box ,the top being veneered with 20 pieces of shard shaped San Domingo rosewood, edged with a black inlay. As a feature I have inserted slithers of veneer at a dovetail angle to the corners of the box. It has one tray with a handle that allows you to remove easily to reveal the bottom layer . The tray and bottom are lined with a light brown suede like material.

I love the veneering on that. The Sycamore really sets it off too. Nice work!

Very excellent…! The veneered top really stands out.

Another nice veneering job. Great idea for top. I do the miter keys for added strength to the miter glue joint. Do you think the slivers will add much strength?

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!

Nice looking box. What brand of hinges did you use?

Nice box, well made. I want to know more about the hinges too…smart hinge from Ian Hawthorne?

Thankyou for your lovely comments, Robert ,I don’t think they add too much strength to the corners ,but I also done it for a bit of a feature so it doesn’t look too plain. Rustynails and Matthew,yes they are “smarthinge” and I bought them from Andrew Crawford, a top box maker , who has now commisioned them to be made in England,lovely quality but expensive.
