Just another jewelry box – this one was for my step-daughter’s birthday. This was my first go at building one and, as is often the case, I learned quite a bit about what NOT to do next time. Overall, I was pleased with how it turned out. The main box is made of cherry; the pull out tray is domestic walnut; wooden hinge is cherry; and the top has a wenge inlay. The cherry was bookmatched and given the dark veins that ran throughout, it made for an interesting effect at the mitered corners.
