I made this jewelry box as a baby gift for some friends. Made from south american mahogany, and finished with my own tung oil, boiled linseed oil, poly blend. I built it all as one piece, rounded the top over, and then sliced the lid off with my bandsaw.

That will be around for 100 years or more, and will only look better with time. Great work. Did you do the flocking or is it stick on? I ask because I’ve only done the stick on variety.

it’s stick on. I did it last spring and have only just recently started using the flocking. I prefer the flocking, it makes for a more seemless look.

Nice work. I like the subtle shaping around the hinge as well as the spacing of the dovetails.
