Hey Folks, Here is my latest project. My daughters birthday is tomorrow (9 years old) and this is my gift. It is made from some Hack-berry and walnut that i milled myself from some logs that I saved from the fire. I love making something so wonderful out of wood that people were going to burn. This shows my wife that all the logs I bring home (and I do bring home a lot) can be turned into something useful. The velvet was not too bad to do but going into the crafts store and to the fabric isle no doubt was lets say a little weird feeling. I am 6’3” and 250 lbs and I’m looking for velvet. Oh well for a good cause. Thanks for looking any comments and criticisms are welcome. This is the first one of many of these type boxes I think. Next will be all sanded crazy like Andy’s boxes. Have fun and keep the chips flying.

Looks really nice. The contrasting woods are beautiful.

Nice box. I like your choice of wood and design. I’m sure it will be a big hit with your daughter.

What a great Jewelry Box! Your daughter is going to love it! You are a good dad to brave the fabric department of the hobby store for red velvet, I just hope that there are not any lasting psychological scars from doing so.

I like the corners and the way the feet blend in. The 3rd photo shows some great detail. Very nice work.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and now time to work!!!

Great jewelry box. I’m sure your daughter will love it. At 6’ 3” and 250 lbs. why would you care what people thought? I’m sure no one said anything. :-))
