Thought you might like to see some of the ribbon and bow jewellery boxes I make. They are made from Sapele and some of the ribbon and bows are Maple and Purple Heart and some Maple and Wenge or Walnut. The trays are all White Maple.
They are lined with self adhesive red velvet I just get from Amazon here in England. I finish them with a few coats of spray lacquer which I find the easiest finish to get in and around the bows.
