This is the first jewelry box that I’ve made. I used bubinga and maple to build this jewelry box. As an experiment I tried to avoid using screws or nails(except for the hinges) and was successful. I had a great time building it.

Very nice. I like the contrasting colors and the overall design. What is the curved piece for in the lid, for hanging necklaces?

Beautiful work. Joints look tight, wood combo is nice. Finiswh looks great also.

The curved piece set into the lid is for hanging necklaces on.
