This box was made for my course in marquetry a few years ago. The compass rose is 32 pieces of silver elm dyed gray and blue. 16 pieces intersect in the point, 16 more around it for the second layer. I trimmed the maple box in purple heart edging, pull and lift and the lid is birch ply with English white oak background. I wanted the box to have as much interest inside as out, so on the inner lid, i inlaid a pattern from my marquetry class cut on my scroll saw. I cut 4 layers while doing this and used other layers for other projects. Hinges are wooden dowels and the jewelry trays are lined with navy felt.
