A jewellery box for beginners
A jewellery box like this should be well within the capabilities of all but the newest member without any woodworking experience, it uses plain mitred joints made in a way that requires very little skill. The finish was six coats of Shellac, chosen because of it's very fast drying, and was completed by rubbing down with fine wire wool lubricated with mineral oil which left a nice smooth, almost antique finish. The size of the box, which was dictated by the size of the wood blocks that I had is 9" x 6" x 2.25" high. I think that the large number of photographs should make construction self explanatory.
