Using the box joint jig, that I made recently and tested with the small keepsake box, I made this jewelry box. It also uses ash and cherry and the same laminating approach of alternating woods in an attempt to produce an interesting effect with the end grain on the joints which turned out to be mildly successful. The two trays can be lifted out to reveal a third storage area at the bottom – not so much a secret hiding place as one to keep infrequently used jewelry. The lid panel is two pieces of spalted red oak that are proud and pillowed.

Pallet boards, found wood, and scraps of maple, ash, cherry, alder, poplar, walnut, lyptus, and red oak. Tray bottoms are covered with tan felt. Danish oil and two coats of WB Poly

What a great looking box, the joints are great and the splines are really nice. The trays look great as well.

Great detail work. The little lift out trays are fantastic, and the idea you used to make handles for each works perfectly! Great build.

Nice box with very clean/precise joinery throughout.
