Jewelry Box

March 16, 2011 § Leave a comment

In what might have been my 5th attempt to fix Kami’s crappy jewelry box, I had an epiphany.  Build or buy, because this thing is a piece of junk.  Sure, I could have purchased one that was probably better in terms of it’s craftsmanship and cheaper, but where is the fun in that.  So, I set out to build one.  I wanted to make it a little unique and one that would fit her needs.  I accomplished neither.  Well, the unique part is debatable, but suiting her needs, not so much.  Either way, it is a box that holds jewelry so we are going to call it good enough. 

This is my first attempt at corner splines on mitered corners.  If nothing else it did strengthen the joint.  This one is made from red oak with sections of Brazilian cherry.  Simple trays made out of red oak and lined in felt inside.  Here it is prior t the finish being applied.

Here it is after the finish of Danish Oil and Minwax Paste Wax.
