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
