A simple jewellery box with a little spring catch. Two types of oak dovetailed up and sat on a walnut plinth. It’s a panel lid using some book-matched elm I had. I’ve bodged up a little lift-out tray in iroko. Despite some trials, this seems to have worked ok. This is going to be a Christmas present, so I hope the recipient likes it.
