    Jewerly Box

    My first attempt working with Cherry,a little pricy. But I like the color. Wanted to use Birds eye Maple but was a bit out of my price range. So went with Curly Maple instead. Its kind of a confusing design, but it all came to gether afterseveral days of scratching my head. Still have to put some Red velvet in the drawer bottoms. Finished with BLO and 3 coats of deft spray. Rubed out with some paste wax.Click image for larger version.

    If you make a mistake it was part of the original plan!

    Ooooo, Ron, that is very cool. I really like the asymmetrical wave/drawer pulls.

    Very beautiful. Lots of unique features on it to compliment.
    I think you might have regretted choosing birds eye maple. A friend just completed a project with birds eye and is stil cussin' it. A lot of the eye popped out and gave him fits. He filled some and handled the rest with naughty words.

    Ron,

    Nice work on the design from the latest issue (195) of Wood Magazine! I saw that and thought I might do one also. I like your combinations of materials.

    Beautiful Jewelry box Ron. I really like the curves and mix of woods.
