Here is a jewellery box that I just finished making. It box itself is made from cherry. I decided to cut the cove after I had cut the lid off, I think it looks pretty good.

The lid is made from cherry, walnut and maple veneer with birdseye maple edging, and the inside of the lid panel is curly cherry veneer. The trays are cherry with walnut bottoms, and the ledge that they sit on is Spanish cedar.

The finish on the box is three coats of tried and true and then wax. The lid has several coats of blonde shellac, buffed out and then waxed.

Thanks for looking.

Lovely job Jeremy. Your accuracy in the cutting really shows in the end result.

Jeremy, This is a really nice. I’m thinking about how in the world you get all those little pieces perfectly sized and lined up to secure them to the substrate.

That is absolutely beautiful.
Thank you for showing.

-- Bob, Western Australia, The Sun came up this morning, what a great start to the day. Now it's up to me to make it even better. I've cut this piece of wood 4 times and it's still too damn short.

Very nice work Jeremy. I’m glad you showed a picture of the box opened so we could see that very nice wood under the lid.

That’s excellent.

Those seams are really tight.

My glue ups tend to look like I did my finishing work with a chainsaw.

Thanks everyone.

Dr Ken, I show and talk about the jig I made to make the parallelograms in this blog post..

Once I have them all I assemble them all on a large board and I use green masking tape to keep everything together. Then I use old brown glue and my unfinished moxon vice as the press to do the panel glue up. I bought a veneer press screw, but I have not made the press yet. That’s in the near future as well.
