Jewelry Box

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.

Nice job with some beautiful wood. I really like the redwood burl and I’m gonna have to try that India ink thing.

Thank you. The inside will be finished with black velvet – thats what she wanted in it. No dividers, drawers or anything like that.

Nice use of scrap wood. Always nice to get free wood, but that is a great score. The black really sets off the Redwood.

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

Thanks to all of you; one especially nice thing about getting responses to projects I’ve posted is to look at the projects of the people who respond – you all do outstanding craftsmanship, and you’ve given me a lot of ideas and inspiration for other projects. Thanks again.
