I like to make these jewelry boxes when my scrap pile gets filled up. This one is made from maple and has mahogany inlays in the corners. The possibilities are endless as far as design and mixing woods and they make great gifts.

Very nice!
Now make a set of wooden Patron hinges for it.

Jay, I like the form you have used. The cut-out on the bottom is eye-catching. I like the varied corner spline sizes. Nice job of matching the grain on the corners. On a box this small, I think the sides look better if they are a bit thinner. As a rule, I prefer hinged lids. This is fine work and anyone would be pleased to have it as a gift. Keep boxing and keep posting.

Thanks for all the nice comments.

Boxguy, I agree that thinner material does look better and I have made plenty of boxes from 1/2 inch stock. I have also made them with and without hinges. Each box is different depending on my cutoff pile and the time I have to dedicate to making them.

It’s a beautiful jewelry box! Like the contrasting colors, the splines and the feet. Great job, a great gift indeed!
