Here is a jewelry box that I made my wife for Christmas. It is made with Birds Eye Maple and Red Cherry, finished with shellac.

Hi. First of all, nice job on the box. It’s beautiful. I am wondering if you made it from plans in the December 2009/January 2010 issue of Wood magazine? I ask because as soon as I saw it posted here, it looked familiar to me. I knew I had recently seen it. I grabbed the March 2011 issue of the magazine and sure enough, there is a photo of a young man who made this box. Also in the photo is his wife and the box. He gave it to her with the engagement ring in it! Again, great job. The bird’s eye maple is stunning and cherry is always a great looking wood.

Oops, I was misunderstood. I was not implying that turn,turn, turn got engaged. I was just asking if he made the same box as the fellow in Wood magazine who did get engaged.

Thanks for all the comments, and yes box was made from the plan that was in Wood Magazine, and no I am not the guy who got engaged in the Wood magazine article. I made the box for my wife of almost 25 years. Hopefully in 25 years the couple in Wood mag will still cherish their jewelry box as much as they do today.
