This box is made from solid maple, solid walnut, and veneer. Lid panel is veneered in English walnut. The box bottom and tray bottoms are maple veneered panels.
The finish on the maple started with a 1 lb. cut of wax free amber shellac applied as a washcoat, followed by a walnut gel stain applied as a glaze. Everything was then topcoated in satin lacquer.
The lining in the box and trays is ivory velvet and has Brusso stop hinges.

That is a fine looking jewelry box. The wood contrasts are striking and the use of splines along with the contrasting wood tray immediately caught my eye.

I like that compartment layout inside. Overal design is so great with contrasting wood and those splines.

Guess box like that demands them pricey hinges!
