Spalted Tamarind for the carcase, and Wenge for the base and lid frame. The tray carcase is Sapele. The dividers inside were made of Wenge and Sapele. The bottom of the carcase and the tray are lined with foam covered with faux suede. This is my first jewelry box. I should have had the glass folks bevel the edge of the mirror. Live and learn.

it’s pretty hard to beat a nice spalted maple

Excellent use of the wood combination. Awesome build-more pictures would have been nice also.

Thanks for posting.

Beautiful jewelry box first or not. As an alternative to a bevelled mirror you could have rabbeted the inside edge around the frame that the mirror sits in. That would hide the mirror edges nicely.

I like, mirror is a nice touch! Any Diamond stone will bevel the mirror? When mirrors are around children I usually mount with Silicone to prevent any possible breakage accidents.

Fir a first jewelry box it’s pretty bloody cool.

As stef’ suggested, you’ll probably do different next time. However as the rabbits are off munching on carrots, that solution may be a tad difficult as an after thought. May I suggest some carefully prepared quad beading out of the Spalted Tami (if you have any left) may provide an acceptable contrast and hide the raw mirror edges…. just a thought.
