    Meagan's Jewelry Box - Maple/Padauk (pics)

    This year's Christmas project is going to my oldest son's girlfriend Meagan. It's a combination of curly maple, birsdeye maple, hard maple, and padauk. The box style was inspired by a project featured in Wood within the past year, but we changed the dimensions and modifed the center inset. The finish is clear shellac and Formsby's tung oil finish.

    Yeah, Meagan's a sweetheart for sure, and she's been good for our son, but they actually broke up twice in one day two days ago. Fortunately, they've worked it out for now, so she's getting this thing one way or another!

    Scott,

    Excellent choice on the woods! The figure of the curly and birds-eye maple in combination with the color of the padauk makes a Great Project Even Better!
