Default 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.

We now continue with the assembly of the box and end with two shots of the wood that I was given some time ago, allegedly Sheoak but it turned out to be Banksia.

Bob,
Not answering for Harry, but your observation that "it's fun..." is reason enough for me.

I imagine anyone could make a box from MDF and pre-made moldings. They would be a box maker. A woodworker would craft a box from solid wood like Harry has done. That would make him a craftsman would it not? Box maker and craftsman are not the same in my books.

Harry that is a nice write up. I love the way you did the ring holders. I have had problems with that part in the past.
