« Part 58: Potpourri Pot Part 59 of Journey into Woodturning series Part 60: Patagonian Rosewood »

This was a request from a friend asking if I could make a jewelry box. The wood was selected, a brief design was sketched, and work completed. I appreciated the challenge and experience taking an outside source design and attempt to match it.

Ribbon Sapele is a beautiful wood and I believe no matter what the project is, it will turn out great. Maple is a fantastic wood to work with, but there is a risk of soft spots. The Black Walnut is a favorite wood to work with, since its fairly soft hardwood and really shines.

I had a build issue, as the top ended up rather large. I was able to remount it and cut the diameter down. I wanted to dish out the top, but became concerned with accidentally popping through and making a funnel.
