I have some extra cedar from a different project. Was thinking of trying my dado blade out for the 1st time making some box joints for a jewelry box. Problem I got is where do you get the felt stuff for the inside and those little cushions to put rings in?

I bought a flocking kit from Woodcraft if that’s any help. You use an adhesive then squirt the ground felt into the box and shake it around the interior till it’s covered to your liking. As I recall it wasn’t to terribly expensive.

Here is were I order my flocking (felt stuff):

As for the inside guts of the boxes, I would try e-bay.

You can get sticky back felt from any craft store. Not sure how they make those fabric covered ring cushions. I have made them using craft foam but they don’t look as nice as the fabric covered ones, perhaps fabric covered craft foam?
