hi is around the corner, so i made two of these ribbon jewelry box for christmas grifts.
I use curly maple and purple heart for this project, the box size is 10 inch x 5×6. I put a mirror behind the back cover and frame it with thin trim. installing the quadrant hinge toke some time, i wish they make these hinge a few more degree more than 90, so you can see the necklace on you went you put it on. small knots for the flip up necklace holder is hard to find so i made it on the lathe. (the flip up tray i got this idea from good fellows here ) the ring holder is nothing more than roll up felts hot glue to the bottom of the tray. i use three coats of lacquer. over all it was fun making these jewelry box. thanks

What beautiful boxes. Im impressed you have them done for Christmas. I just started a couple of small boxes, one with ribbon. The ribbon work you’ve done looks great. Finish, wood selection and the necklace box, right in the favorites.

So I loved this project so much that I am currently making a very similar one for my fiancĂ© as a wedding present. I beefed up the dimensions a little, so it’s closer to shoe box size and might actually contain 3 trays if I can get them to fit.

I’m really curious how the flip up necklace holder is working out? Do the necklaces get tangled or anything? I’m almost done with the outside box and bow, so I will be designing the trays as soon as I cut the lid off and measure what space I have to work with.
