Tamarac and walnut jewelry box .
Made this one in the last two month and took my time with this one but everything came together and today the finish went on ,could use some beeswax but the lacquer should cure for a few days .
The box is mitred and splined with the vertical spline added to give it a block like look at the corners and the front and sides are coved .The top is a lamination with the tips added which are solid walnut .
The hinges are plated brass but I would have like leather better but could not make it work .
Dimensions are 12” w 6 3/4”d 5” h no stain just spray lacquer and a beige upholstery liner in the bottom with walnut dividers which are removable .

Your design is wonderful and your craftsmanship is outstanding.

You can stop using your name any time now Kiefer.
No one would ever mistake the creator of this box.
I think it’s mostly the signature “Kiefer Curve” but there are other subtleties as well that would betray you.
Another masterful understatement here, not flashy but oh so elegant.

Awesome design and creation Kiefer. There is just something about curves in a box that add a lot of character.
What did you use for your photo background? It takes away from the beauty of the box.

Kiefer, what a lovely box. I like the oriental look. The vertical spline is a nice addition and I like the curved dividers inside. Another very unique project.

Kiefer, just a stunning design. Beautiful.
I love the way you have made the curves to create this unique piece. it is a pity that you could not get the leather hinges into this design. This deserves a gold star!
