A mesquite jewelry box, with a book-matched front panel. Size is approximately 20 inches tall, 12 inches wide and 5 1/2 inches deep. All the mesquite was harvested off a friend land in south Texas and this box was made for his wife. Turquoise was inlay-ed in the front panel and in the top. Finish is satin lacquer. I will let him fill the box with jewelry – what is shown is for demonstration purposes only!

Wow!! Outstanding Build, dgreen50. I love the bookmatch and the turquoise inlay. You did an excellent job on this build and I’m sure it is extra special being the wood came from their land. Again, excellent job and thanks for posting. I’m adding this one to my favorites as I have 3 daughters. I may copy your build for them one day.

Very nicely done—simple but elegant lines, and nice Turquoise inlay/fill accents.

dg, if this is your design, it is an excellent one. If it is not yours…it is still an excellent design. You have done a super job of featuring the wood. There is a great deal of craftsmanship and patience in this build. It shows in the thoughtful details and super finish. Thanks for sharing this with us.

Where did you get the ring holder material?

Keep boxing and keep posting.

For Boyguy-

The ring bar (ring holder) is from Rockler. They work well but are expensive. They have them in blue, red or black.

Very nice! Loving the book matched front, it really shows the quality and care you put into this work of art. If one could only see the love people put into projects to make them that much more special. Great job and great wood selection.

Beautiful looking and a great build. I like the way you used the brass too.
