This is a jewelry box I made for my daughter as a graduation gift. The wood is walnut and bloodwood. It measures 14 inches wide, 9 inches deep and 6 inches tall. I found the project in the October 2005 (issue 165) of Wood Magazine. The finish is several coats of lacquer.

Nicely done.
I can’t believe how red the bloodwood is. I thought you had painted it before I expanded the pics
