A coworker asked me to make a jewelry box that she could give to her grand daughter. I made two thinking someone else at work may want one. They are made mahogany and walnut with blue velvet for the interior. It took a little thought for the ring bars, I ended up using foam backer rod I found at ACE. I ended up braking out my mother-n-laws sewing basked out and sewed the velvet around the backer rode, then hot glued them in. The first one I made had the solid walnut cover. I didn’t have any one piece of mahogany or walnut big enough left for the second cover, so I ended up making a mahogany panel wrapped in walnut for the second cover. Also made dovetail splines out of walnut. Finished them with Danish Oil and spray lacquer.
Thanks for looking,
