This jewellery box was made for my mothers 60th Birthday.
It is made from Jatoba with a burr Walnut top and a tulipwood banding. The trays are made from Birds eye maple.
The splines and the handle are also Walnut. The hinges are SmartBox Hinge.
This was my first box made with mitred corners and splines. I made it where i work and unfortunately some of the tools weren’t fantastic so i do need to invest in a few machines of my own to try to ensure the accuracy when cutting the mitres for example, but i am fairly pleased for my first attempt.
I’ve managed to get hold of some reclaimed Burmese Teak which i think i will use to make the next one, now i have had a bit of practice i hope i have less issues with the next one.
