Default Jewelry Box

I finally finish my daughter's Valentines gift. She's been asking for one for months. I didn't take pictures as I was making it. I always remember after the project is completed.

Nice Box Rolf

I know she will have it for a long time

I also made one for my daughter along time ago and she still talks about it now and then But I don't see the fake bottom for her diary ( a daily record, usually private, esp. of the writer's own experiences, observations, feelings, attitudes, etc.)

The stuff you want/need to read ( when she is about 14 years old ) just joking..

That's what my daughter brings up from time to time about the box I made her just about every thanksgiving dinner but it did keep her out of jail ...tuff love thing...

Well it looks like it was worth the wait. Great looking box, box joints and the inlay is real nice! A heirloom it will be!

That's one very sweet looking box Rolf but PLEASE remember to take a few shots during the making of the next one, we really are interested to see HOW YOU go about the various tasks.

To Rolf:

Great looking jewelry box! I'm sure your daughter will treasure it.

Is that mahogany & maple? What did you use for the finish?
