Finally finished the jewelry box for my daughter’s high school graduation gift – now that she just graduated from college! Made using the plans from the Wood Whisperer Guild ( but made a few modifications. Made from curly White Oak and quartersawn Sapele. Finished with Arm-R-Seal and self-adhesive black felt. It has 2 secret compartments, but I’ll never tell where they are.

Thanks for that. Made me chuckle. I think we’ve all been there to some extent, but I believe you may be a record holder.

Really nice box. Ask her if it was worth the wait. I’m betting she will say yes. That Oak is amazing. I was sure it was Maple based on the curl.

Thanks for posting.

Drool worthy in both wood selection and workmanship! The belated timing definitely is chuckle worthy 8^)

Great box! I’m new to this and am wondering if you use a grain filler on the curly oak? Trying to build one for my wife and the curly oak has some really open grain. Also did you use any coloring in the Arm-n-Seal?
Thanks for the help
