Bought the plans for the ‘Gem of a Jewelry Box’ from online woodworking plans and re-jigged the design to make a sewing box for a chums wife, decided to add a design she liked into the lid and then got an expert to do some pyrography on the inside of the lid with her own sentiments.
It is made from Birds Eye Maple veneer on Maple board (Birds Eye Maple boards are like rocking horse poo in this country)
the legs are Black Walnut. She had previously stated that she had been sewing since she was five and had always wanted a sewing box but never seen one she liked, after a quick inspection of the finished item and on lifting the lid she started to cry.
