Oak Jewelry Box

This reader’s project is a good example that even in great looking pieces, there are often decisions that we’ll make differently “next time.”

This is a jewelry box I made for my sister in Melbourne. It is the first of this type I have made and was done more as a trial piece. The carcass and lid frame are made of recycled silky oak which started life as a door frame in a government building. The lid panel is camphor laurel and the base is pine. I wouldn’t use the pine again but it was a trial piece. The dividers and interior boxes are silky oak.
