Default Simple Jewlery box ideas

Guys and gals my favorite kid a few doors down is turning 3 next month . For her birthday I wouldn't mind building her something . I don't have a router table built yet so I'm thinking maybe I can use my dado blade in my table saw to make finger joints , although I'm open to other options as far as joints go .

No idea what's best for hinges , and how to build the little compartments and drawers .
I guess by felt for inside to line it . And wood recommendations ?

Wish my cnc laser was working as it would have been nice to do some engraving

I don’t always insulate , but when I do .
Ok ,I never insulate

I think it would be a cool present for her , and I hope I conquer it . For some silly reason I've always wanted to attempt making boxes.

I can do some router tasks as I gave my pc690 mounted under my work table . No fence though unless I make a simple one that I can secure with clamps .
Geez I should build my Incra table .
So many projects , so little time

That's a nice box Rick.. I'm sure she will appreciate it.

She might even pay you back when she gets a bit older and help with the insulation.

Sometimes I wonder whether the world is being run by smart people who are putting us on
or by imbeciles who really mean it.

This video shows a nice jewelry box made from ash and purpleheart and the OP provides SketchUp drawings. The picture at the bottom shows the one that I built using maple and walnut. Also, I used dowels instead of biscuits.
