Project Information

I just finished this jewelry box, for practice, working with different wood/color combinations. The woods used in the box include: pine, ash, white oak, quilted maple veneer, yellow heart, walnut, cedar, white oak burl, poplar, birch plywood, African padauk, cocobolo and maple burl veneer. There are 2 hidden compartments accessible by removing the front drawer and taking the pin/key and swing the sides in. It was a fun project and surprised me how well the different woods and colors worked together.

That is nice! I love using several types of wood together in one project. I would love to see more detail on the hidden compartments. Maybe I should start a thread on hidden compartments! Great box!

Excellent Box! I too would like to hear more about the secret compartment. I was reading in FWW about Steve Latta's Amish spice box with it's secret compartments, and find this fascinating.

This is a wonderful box. You managed to put practically an entire forest into it. The woods all came together nicely.

Thanks for the post. This is truly a gorgeous box.
