Jewelry Box from Lee E.
This box was submitted to us by customer Lee Ethetton. Here is what he had to say about the project:
"I wanted to make this jewelry box to be a very special birthday present for a very special lady. This was my first real wood working project after retiring so I made it out of cherry and both the 36 hand cut dovetails and the coopered top using eight slats to make the top were quite challenging.
The box is 15" square and 5" high. The lid is fairly heavy due to its size so using the Brusso JB-107 hinges gave me confidence that the top would open and stop securely and I would not be concerned with it holding over time.
The interior is padded with a thin firm foam covered by a 100" English wool felt. This is a present she and her grandchildren will hopefully treasure for many generations."
