This is a jewelry box project for my Daughter’s 22nd birthday at the end of the month. She was with me when I picked up the wood (zebra and padauk) although she did not know what I was going to do with it.
This is certainly my finest jewelry box so far. Perfect? Not at all, but I got ambitious and I had more good luck than bad. I would like to say I am a perfectionist, but that would require I hit close to perfect every now and then. The pictures look good, but there are a lot of things I would have liked to come out just a little better.
There were some serious challenges in this project some of which were due to either my lack of experience or lack of patience resulting in errors. I managed to recover from the errors.
[Hopefully she won’t see it here before her birthday. She doesn’t visit this site so nobody send her this direction :)]
I am a little burned out on boxes. I think I’ll search for something to take me in a another direction for a bit.
thanks for looking.
