Here is a recently completed jewelry box. It is made of cherry with walnut accents. It was my first try at mitered keys and making a continuous grain box. It is bascially the box from a recent Fine Woodworking accept that I routed feet into the bottom. Thanks for looking.

That’s a nice looking box. Simple design, nice wood, well built. I like the simple cutout for the lid.

Very nice! I love the continuous grain. I’m learning, so I want to know, how did you line the box? I’m bound and determined to line my next box, so any good advice is appreciated. Andy (Craven’s shop assistant)

I bought self adhesive velvet from Rockler. I cut poster board to fit the inside of the box then I stuck the velvet to the poster board and then scored the velvet with a utility knife and cut it with scissors. I glued the poster board with the velvet on it to the inside of the box. I found this to be the easiest way to cut the velvet accurately but others may have better ideas. Thanks for the nice comments.

Sweet box. Walnut and cherry are great contrasts.
