So this is my first jewellery box, thought it’d make a nice gift for the girlfriend at Xmas. Its made from European Oak and Sapele, the timber cost £25 and took around 12hrs to make over 3 weeks. Was good fun to make however I didn’t have a decent thicknesser at the start otherwise I would have used 15mm width wood instead of 20mm, But its certainly a solid piece so I think it’ll last well. Finished the box off with button polish and then a good buff with brywax furniture polish to darken up the grain and give a nice sheen.

Any tips or feed back would be good hear

Very nice box Jim, beautiful wood and finish and very nice dovetail joinery and design. My wife likes it because it has purple in the box so it is a winner in her eyes…great job and thanks for sharing.

Nice work Jim. You must plan on keeping that girlfriend around for a while. She will love it.
