« Part 1: Ogee bracket feet Part 2 of bloodwood jewelry box series Part 3: The top »

The jewelry box is coming along as you can see. I also have the top glued together but no pics yet. I have a tray that I’m working on but not anywhere complete . I also haven’t decided on a color of velvet to use, I have red crushed velvet but I was thinking about dark blue or black I don’t know yet. Also I’m thinking ahead about the hinges I would like to use brusso hinges for small boxes or some other type of quality hinge but the problem I’m concerned about is there isn’t much wood where most hinges place there screw holes I’m thinking about getting bigger hinges (wider than 3/4) and trimming them. Maybe someone has seen hinges without holes predrilled or a suggestion.

Thanks for looking!

Beautiful looking box so far and I too look forward to seeing the end results. Any way you could tell us how you go about making those nice feet?
