Just finished my wife’s new jewelry box. I got the wood free from a guitar manufacturer that I deliver wood to. They cut out an electric guitar body and the rest is scrap destined usually for somebody’s wood stove. The pieces I get are never large, so you can see where I had to join two pieces together to make the top. Still, my wife really likes it. I was told it is redwood burl. The sides are maple stained with india ink. Finished with three coats of Minwax water-based polyurethane. I also made one just like this for my daughter with scraps of tiger maple tinted a reddish color. The plans are from Woodsmith.
