This is a graduation gift for my Grand Daughter. It is my second try at a jewelry box. Solid spalted cherry top and some tiger maple sides. Lined with black felt and incorporates solid brass hinges.

Did the joints with my Incra Lite Jig on the router, made a kerfmaker jig for the dividers. Three coats of Danish oil and two coats of hand rubbed wax.

I agree with everybody. Nice work and nice wood. The stripes of the Maple look good in a vertical orientation.

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

Very pretty box especially the top with those wood patterns. Simple design but really well made. Like the dovetails. Great work!
